Too right. Interesting, too, to see the amount of effort put into producing and publicising the 22 page vaccination brochure yet we were told no audience research was done to make sure they were developing the right types of messages for the audience they wanted to reach. The National Academy of Science in the US have spoken about the value of doing this. Developing strategies without understanding the audience first risks distancing them even further.

A huge shame the Minister wasn't there!
