Vaccine Emergency Authorisation

Roedd y cais yn rhannol lwyddiannus.

Dear Public Health England,

The vaccines I gather have receive emergency authorisation. Please will you send me that emergency authorisation and the circumstances under which emergency authorisation can occur.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Nick Redwood,

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/media/2617613/ico-reg...

Dear Nick Redwood,

Thank you for your email to Public Health England (PHE) requesting information about emergency authorisation of vaccines.

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 Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency, which is responsible for ensuring that medicines, medical devices and blood components for transfusion meet applicable standards of safety, quality and efficacy. The MHRA granted authorisation of the COVID-19 vaccines under Regulation 174 of the Human Medicine Regulations 2012 and will be able to further assist you.

For your convenience, I have located the MHRA decision notices below:

They say MHRA is the correct body for this information and also appear to have a phantom email which they did an internal review on

Dear Information Rights,

I see that the email you replied to was in fact an email to JCVI. As you took that as a request to PHE /UKHSA can you clarify if JCVI is part of UKHSA and if it was part of PHE?

Yours sincerely,
