Request for post vaccination mortality data

Joseph Byrne made this Freedom of Information request to Public Health England

Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

We're waiting for Joseph Byrne to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Public Health England,

I would like to make the following request for information:

Please provide me with the number of people who have died within 28 days of receiving a COVID-19 vaccine from 08/12/2021 - Present. Please note that I am not asking for how many people have died where the COVID-19 vaccine was stated as a cause of death but rather how many people have died in total after receiving either one or two doses of a vaccine.

I understand that vaccination status isn’t identified on a persons death certificate. However, this doesn’t mean that this information isn’t noted on a persons medical record prior to death and I would imagine there will be statistics in order to support the ongoing medical trial of the current vaccines that are in circulation across the UK.

I would prefer this information to be received via email.

If you have any questions regarding this request please do not hesitate to contact me on 07709030935

Kind regards,

Joseph Byrne

Dear Joseph Byrne,

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...
