Please confirm which organisation or organisations the Government of Jersey employed to conduct this campaign, and how much it cost the taxpayer?
All of the COVID-19 vaccination campaigns have been, and continue to be, developed in-house by the Government of Jersey Communications Directorate. This particular campaign ran from January 2021 to October 2021.
The total cost of the paid-for advertising activity (any spend that is associated with the placement of advertising on relevant platforms) over these ten months was approximately £5,200 per month. This advertising activity was intended to build important awareness of the vaccination offer and to ensure that maximum uptake and subsequent protection against COVID-19 was achieved.
As at 31 October 2021, more than 172,000 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine had been administered in Jersey.
