Supplementary notes

According to the source: "For this report, 1,000 coronavirus vaccine misinformation posts were identified, recorded and reported to the platforms by volunteers in the period from 21 July to 26 August. Of those reports, 88 were filtered out by the CCDH for not meeting the threshold of constituting clearly harmful misinformation. This left 912 posts for auditing to see what action was taken. For the study, we assumed posts and accounts that can no longer be accessed were removed by the platform on which they appeared. It is possible, however, that they were removed by group owners, administrators or posters."
