Dear phs foi,
I was just looking for further clarification. The information you have provided on this request states than less than 5 people who were double vaccinated against covid 19 died from covid 19, however on the official stats produced by Public Health Scotland, it seems that 27 people who had been double vaccinated against covid 19, died from covid 19.

I was just wondering which information is accurate.

Is it because those 27 people who passed away with covid 19, had other underlying health issues, or had perhaps passed from another short illness, and passing 'with' covid 19' is separate from passing 'due to covid 19'.

Any information/clarification would be greatly appreciated.

Yours sincerely,

Vikki Hastings

Dear Vikki Hastings,

 

There were less than 5 individuals who were double-vaccinated against
COVID-19, who died from COVID-19 alone and there were no other
contributing factors to their death as listed on their death certificate.
The 27 deaths mentioned may have other contributing factors alongside
COVID-19 as causes of death.

 

I hope this of assistance.

 

Best regards,

 

Saba AL Salahy
