Thank you for your interest in Pfizer!
Here are a few things you should know when visiting, commenting or posting on one of our channels:
What counts as an endorsement
From time to time we may link to another location or social account from one of our channels. Our linking to or following a non-Pfizer website or social media account is not necessarily an endorsement of those properties or parent organizations; we only endorse our own content.
Unfortunately, sometimes we have to pull a comment or cannot respond. Here's Why.
We've set up our social properties to share news with you about Pfizer. We want to get your thoughts on our updates, but below are reasons why we might need to remove your comment or we are unable to respond:
Your comment references a Product (ours or someone else's)
While we do not endorse any users’ comments other than our own, we still have to be mindful of the important regulations that govern our industry. If your post references a pharmaceutical brand from any company – positive or negative – we will need to remove it because, among other reasons, we can’t guarantee that it will represent Fair Balance.
Your comment references a Side Effect
If your post includes possible side effect associated with a Pfizer product, we may be required to contact you for further information. You may contact us to report an adverse event related to Pfizer products by calling 1-800-438-1985 (U.S. only). Or if you prefer, you may contact the FDA directly: please visit www.fda.gov/medwatch or call 1-800-FDA-1088. Non-U.S. visitor?: ask your health care provider for more information or contact your local health authority
Your comment contains Vulgarity
If you use profane language, your post gets pulled (and it might get screened by Facebook’s profanity filter before being posted in the first place). In addition to vulgar language, we’ll be screening for personal attacks of any kind or offensive terms that target specific ethnic, racial, religious, age or gender orientation groups. We ask that everyone treat each other with respect.
Your comment contains Medical Advice
It is great to want to provide help to your fellow visitors, but given the serious implications unsolicited and unverified medical advice might have, we can’t allow it on our Wall. As always, we recommend consulting with your physician on any medical condition.
Your comment is Off-Topic
This can be a tricky one: we’re not looking to censor you, but sometimes comments are spam, are clearly off topic, make unsupported accusations or promote services or products. If you feel we’ve been unfair in removing your comment, please reach out to us and we can discuss it.
Just in Case
There is a chance we’ll encounter a situation not outlined above, which will require us to remove your comment. We’ll try to update this list if we do find a new reason, but please know that Pfizer does reserve the right to delete any posting at its sole discretion. Of course, if this does happen and you feel it is unfair, please reach out to us so we can talk about it.
