The Linn County Public Health Department ran a handful of advertisements in late August on Facebook telling people if they are vaccinated and boosted with COVID shots then they’re “protected against COVID-19.”

This despite the fact that vaccinated and boosted individuals have now been told they will not have any additional protection from COVID.

You can view an ad here that claims the COVID shots will keep a family protected. The add pushes the vaccine for anyone six months and older.

This ad encourages people to either start, finish or boost their COVID shot status.

This ad claims if you’re vaccinated and boosted, then you are protected from COVID.

This ad claims that keeping kids “protected” keeps them “healthy.” And it claims “healthy” kids are “happy” kids. And, of course, the way to protect your family is to get a COVID shot.

Linn County Public Health is also encouraging people to get the Monkeypox vaccine.

This ad appears to show two dudes who are maybe supposed to appear as a couple.

This ad is similar to another it is running. And there are six ads using the same creative and text — just like the couple one.

Typically it is possible to see how much money someone spends on an ad campaign, but that option doesn’t appear to be available for these ads.
