Why does Instagram add links to some posts in my feed?

Instagram is committed to keeping people safe and informed about coronavirus (COVID-19), COVID-19 vaccines and reducing the spread of false information.

You may now find links to Instagram’s COVID-19 Information Center or health organizations on content you’ve posted or see in your feed if the post mentions COVID-19 or vaccines.

Links to health organizations

By providing links to credible health information on posts related to COVID-19, we can continue to prioritize safety and connect people with accurate information as the COVID-19 outbreak evolves.

You may also find links to CDC.gov, WHO.int, or your local health ministries on posts related to vaccines and when searching for vaccine-related accounts or hashtags for accurate and up-to-date vaccination information.

How do I hide these links?

At this time links to the COVID-19 Information Center and health organizations on Instagram cannot be removed or hidden from posts related to COVID-19 and vaccines. Keep in mind that even if you change the content of the caption, the banner may not be removed.
