Death from the vaccine v unjabbed

The request was partially successful.

Dear Office for National Statistics,

Hello staff,
I am deeply worried and curious about vaccine injustices and deaths and I would therefore like the numbers for vaccine deaths and natural deaths who dies with no underlying issues ie deaths from the jab versus deaths of healthy folks who weren’t already sick or dying.

Thank you.

Yours faithfully,

Rudi Meier,

Our response:

Thank you for your request.

Deaths involving the COVID-19 vaccination

Our data is derived from the death certificate, using information received
at the point of death registration.  For the vaccine to be mentioned on
the death certificate the medical professional certifying the death must
have believed, to the best of their knowledge, that the vaccine was part
of the events that led to the death. Deaths reported as due to or
involving the COVID-19 vaccination are recorded using ICD-10 code U12.9.
We do not receive information on the brand of vaccination administered.

We report deaths attributed to adverse reaction to the COVID-19
vaccination monthly within our [1]Monthly Mortality Analysis. The latest
data available is December 2021.

There are currently 15 deaths registered in England and Wales with the
aligning ICD codes for this, 10 of these deaths have ICD-10 U12.9 as the
underlying cause.

Due to the small numbers involved, we are unable to provide further
disaggregation of this data to show only those who died with no
pre-existing conditions. We would be unable to provide this requested
data, as this granular level of data produces low numbers, which cause a
disclosure risk.  We are prohibited by law from publishing statistics in
which individual businesses or persons can be identified. This includes
disclosure of information that can be linked with other information in the
public domain to identify an individual. [2]Section 39 of the Statistics
and Registration Service Act 2007 (SRSA) renders it an offence to disclose
information held by the Statistics Board for statistical purposes that
would identify an individual. As we are prohibited by law from publishing
statistics in which individuals can be identified, we find that Section 44
of the [3]Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) applies. [4]Section 44 is
an absolute exemption and no consideration of the public interest test
needs to be applied.

However, please note that these are deaths across all age groups since the
rollout of the vaccination in December 2020 and there are no deaths
registered under the age of 35.

This data will be updated for January 2022 on 23 February 2022.

scheme data can be found in this blog. [5]How many people have died as a
