Compatibility of the advertising costs for Germany’s COVID-19 vaccination campaign with the EU rules on State aid

Question for written answer  E-001526/2022
to the Commission
Rule 138
Gunnar Beck (ID)

With the aim of informing citizens about COVID-19 vaccinations and encouraging them to get vaccinated, the German Federal Government carried out a large-scale information and education campaign, spending approximately EUR 300 million[1].

Will the Commission classify the German Federal Government’s advertising campaign for vaccinations as unlawful aid in view of the fact that the advertising almost exclusively benefits BioNTech? If not, why not?
