FOIA Requests (Swansea Bay UHB), Swansea Bay University Health Board

Dear Dr Wilkens,

I am just getting in touch for some clarification around your FOIA request if possible please. Regarding your last question;

• Do you record covid-19 vaccination status in your electronic maternity records?
If possible for 2021 & 2022 could you give all of the above data by COVID-19 vaccination status (0/1/2/3/4 doses) or state if you do not record vaccination status.

Where you state " could you give all of the above data by COVID-19 vaccination status (0/1/2/3/4 doses)" could you please clarify what you meant by "all of the above date by COVID-19 vaccination status"? which data are you referring to? Are you asking for the number of pregnant women by year that received the COVID-19 vaccine in each year?

We will hold your request until we receive your response.

Kind regards,

Kath

Dr Julia Wilkens

Dear FOIA Requests (Swansea Bay UHB),
many thanks for your message.
If at all possible, I am seeking the obstetric data by vaccination status ie number of stillbirths, neonatal deaths etc depending on the vaccination status of the mother.
I hope this clarifies my request.
Yours sincerely,

Dr Julia Wilkens
