The return of disinformation over vaccines

The National Movement for Vaccination began on 03/27, with President

Lula receiving the bivalent dose against Covid-19. The event was widely publicized and generated many reactions on the internet. Disinformation content was published en masse on this day over different platforms, and reverberated over the following days.

Regarding the volume of content over time, Whatsapp, Telegram and disinformation sites stand out for their role in keeping the debate strong throughout the analyzed period.
