Dear Public Health England,
Could you please provide the total number of deaths for any reason within 28 days of having a covid vaccine from the start of the vaccination roll out to date.
Dear Nathan Simpson
Thank you for your email.
PHE can confirm the subject matter in question does not fall within PHE's remit. We, therefore, confirm PHE does not hold the information you have requested.
Under Section 16 of the FOI Act, public authorities have a duty to provide advice and assistance. Accordingly, you may wish to contact the Office of National Statistics (ONS), which is responsible for the registration of death certificates in England and Wales. You can access ONS mortality datasets at: https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationa...
Additionally, you may wish to contact the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). The MHRA regulate medicines and medical devices, and ensures that medicines and medical devices including vaccines, meet applicable standards of safety, quality and efficacy. The MHRA operate the Yellow Card scheme, which is the UK system for collecting and monitoring information on suspected safety concerns or incidents involving medicines and medical devices.
