Dear Paul Lewis,

Thank you for your email.

There is no graphene oxide in the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine, a list of excipients in the vaccine is available in the Information for Healthcare Professionals. Further details on the lipid nano particles used in the vaccine are available in the Public Assessment Report (PAR) and the Information for Healthcare Professionals for that vaccine.

These documents can be found at the following link: Regulatory approval of Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine for COVID-19 - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)

Yours sincerely

Dear MHRA Customer Services,

I didn't ask specifically about the Pfizer 'vaccine'.

Please answer the question I asked which was for all 'vaccines' in current use.

thanks

Dear MHRA Customer Services,

thanks

The original request was "Which vaccines and medicines, that are currently being used in England, contain Graphene Oxide"

Can I change this to include graphene derivatives and not just Graphene Oxide

Dear Paul Lewis,

 

Graphene oxide is not in any licensed vaccines.

 

With regards to the request whether the vaccines are tested by independent
laboratories, all laboratories used in the testing of all authorised
vaccines before they are released for use in the UK have to provide
certificates to show that they work in compliance with Good Laboratory
Practice and have to provide proof of a recent inspection by a mutually
recognised medicines authority.

 

Kind Regards

Dear MHRA Customer Services,

Let me know which medicines and vaccines that are authorised for use in England that include graphene oxide and derivatives of graphene oxide.

The list of ingredients doesn't include the ingredients that are classified as 'trade secrets'
