Apple has banned a dating and friendship app for unvaccinated people from its App Store — but the so-called “Tinder for anti-vaxxers” is still available on Android devices.


Unjected — which bills itself as a “safe space for the unvaccinated to come together uncensored through business, friendship or love” — was banned from Apple’s App Store after Bloomberg asked the company for comment. 


Apple said that Unjected “inappropriately refers to the COVID-19 pandemic in its comment or theme,” according to emails from the company to Unjected that were shared with The Post. 


But Unjected remains available on Google’s Play Store, where it advertises unsubstantiated claims about COVID-19 vaccines, saying that the vaccines “are shedding dangerous spike proteins.” 


The app was launched by two women from Hawaii in May, shortly after apps like Tinder and Bumble rolled out incentives for users to get vaccinated.
