Dear University of Auckland,

Please could you provide any details or copies of analyses of the health outcomes (e.g. different rates of illness, medical conditions etc) of the children from within the study based on their vaccination status, that is: fully vaccinated, partially vaccinated and never vaccinated groups as per the NZ childhood vaccination schedule.
