Deaths from ALL CAUSES following administration of a COVID-19 vaccine

Public Health England Nid oedd gan y wybodaeth y gofynnwyd amdani.

Dear Public Health England,

Would you please provide me with the total number of deaths in England, from any cause including COVID-19, within 28 days of the deceased having been administered one or more doses of a COVID-19 vaccine, from the start of the vaccination roll-out date to the most recent figures available?

In addition, could you please break these numbers of deaths down for the months of January, February, March and - if the data is available by the time you respond - April, 2021?

Finally, could you also supply the deaths in England attributed to COVID-19 on the same criteria - i.e. the deceased having tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 within 28 days of dying - for the same period? And, again, could you break these numbers down into the same months of 2021?

I would prefer to receive this information in electronic format by return e-mail.

Yours faithfully

Simon Elmer

Dear Simon Elmer

We acknowledge receipt of your email and request for information, which will be treated as a request for information under statutory access legislation.

Please note that requests under the Freedom of Information Act and the Environmental Information Regulations (EIRs) will receive a response within 20 working days from the day following the date of receipt of your request.

If the request is for your personal data, your request has been handled as a data subject access request (SAR) under Article 15 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), then we will respond within one month of the receipt of the request.

Public Health England (PHE) is responsible for providing guidance and advice to government and front-line services for all aspects of public health. It is a designated Category 1 responder organisation under the Civil Contingency Act and this specifically includes the COVID-19 response, providing clinical expertise and wider public health advice and guidance across national and local government, the NHS and third sector. As such, you may experience delays when making statutory information access requests during the pandemic.

We will aim to address all requests promptly and within the required response timeframes. However when we are unable to meet the response timeframe we will keep requesters updated on a revised expected timescale for a response to their request. The Information Commissioner recognises this position in its recent guidance, see link: https://ico.org.uk/global/data-protectio...
