Xbox urged its users to get vaccinated and debunked conspiracy theories about COVID-19

Game division Microsoft addressed its audience with a request to get vaccinated against coronavirus COVID-19

August 27 official Twitter account Xbox reacted to the call of the administration of the President of the United States of America Joe Biden for social media platforms to more actively motivate their users to participate in the vaccination program amid a surge in the incidence: over 78% of hospital beds in the United States are now occupied by covid patients, most of whom (99.5%) they are unvaccinated.

The platform owner has published several posts with the following posts:

“The ability to play daily makes us heroes in new worlds. You can become a hero in real life by being vaccinated against COVID-19, protecting yourself and the people around you.”

“The US-approved COVID-19 vaccines are very effective in preventing serious illness and death, including against the Delta variant. Unvaccinated people are currently most at risk of contracting and spreading the virus.”

The corporation also hosted a live broadcast on Twitch in collaboration with the CDC (US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), where she answered user questions.

In particular, Microsoft tried to dispel popular conspiracy theories around the COVID-19 vaccine.

“To dispel some of the common myths about COVID-19 vaccines: vaccines do not contain microchips or magnets, they do not alter your DNA, they do not cause COVID-19 infection, and there is no evidence that they have any effect on pregnancy, or fertility.

Millions of people vaccinated against COVID-19 have not been found to have serious side effects associated with long-term health problems.

To maximize protection against COVID-19 and the Delta variant, the CDC recommends wearing a mask, washing your hands and getting a full vaccination. “
