Dear Public Health Wales,
Please could you send me information under the freedom of information act, on the confirmed genotype and vaccination status of each lab confirmed measles cases in the U.K. 1990 to present 09/05/19.
Thank you for your recent FOI request.
Public Health England collate this data at a UK level, so it would probably be best for you to direct your enquiry there.
We hold some data for cases in Wales, this would only be readily accessible for cases from 2013. We would certainly be unable to fulfil this request for every case from 1990 onwards.
Genotyping is carried out centrally for England and Wales by PHE on a proportion on confirmed cases and we are not informed of the genotype for all cases, so again PHE would be best placed to advise here.
I can retrieve the data for Wales as mentioned above, but as I said you would get a fuller picture from contacting Public Health England. Let me know how you would like us to proceed.
Thank you for contacting Public Health Wales with your freedom of information request.
I have forwarded your email to our FoI team who will be in touch in due course.
