Virality Project Weekly Briefing #23: 'May 26, 2021 - June 2, 2021'   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Key Takeaways: "[1] On May 25, the Virality Project noted that with the approval of COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] vaccines extended to younger children [hyperlink], we would see 'old narratives recycled from adult audiences to now target youth'. This week we see those tactics in action as a right-leaning doctors' group, 'America's Frontline Doctors', petitions to 'ban the use of Pfizer in children'. [2] French and German social media influencers were the target of a 'Russian-linked campaign to smear US- and European-developed vaccines' last week, bringing attention to 'influencers' potential role in the spread of and resistance to misinformation.' [3] Exceedingly rare cases of fatal blood clots following COVID-19 vaccination continue to capture the public and media's attention after BBC's [British Broadcasting Corporation] Lisa Shaw dies one week after receiving her first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine."
