Pinterest has announced it will direct users searching for information about vaccines to results from leading public health groups.
The social media giant revealed it will show facts from leading medical bodies including the World Health Organization (WHO).
The site will also ban adverts, comments or recommendations on those pages to avoid any misinformation being shown.
