Dear Mr Roberts,

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/global/data-protectio...

Dear Peter K. Roberts,

Thank you for your email.

PHE can confirm the subject matter in question does not fall within PHE's remit. We, therefore, confirm PHE does not hold the information you have requested.

Under Section 16 of the FOI Act, public authorities have a duty to provide advice and assistance. Accordingly, you may wish to contact the Office of National Statistics (ONS), which is responsible for the registration of death certificates in England and Wales. The ONS mortality datasets can be found here: https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationa...

Additionally, you may wish to contact the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). The MHRA operates the Yellow Card scheme, which is the UK system for collecting and monitoring information on suspected safety concerns or incidents involving medicines and medical devices, including COVID-19 vaccines. The contact details can be found here:

Public Health England do not have this information but have suggested the Office of National Statistics or the MHRA may have. I've already asked the ONS via What do they Know so I'll ask the MHRA separately.
