Virginia Crawford made this Official Information request to Ministry of Health

The request was successful.

From: Virginia Crawford

Dear Ministry of Health,

Could you please provide a (clickable) link to the CARM database, relating to reported adverse side effects experienced as a result of being injected with Cominarty?

I don't mean a link to REPORT a side effect, only to PERUSE reported side effects.

I have been looking for this, but without success. Thank you in advance.

Yours faithfully,

Virginia Crawford

I have been able to find the database, but in the vaccines section, there is no entry for a Covid vaccine(s). Could you please correct this?

The Ministry of Health, in their response to this OIA have provided a link to a report. I cannot see any link to view the actual database in the provided link, which is what was requested by Virginia Crawford.

I just clicked on the link provided ( https://www.medsafe.govt.nz/COVID-19/saf... ) and the last entry was for up untill the 6th of March. It is now the 5th of May. Where are the reports for the last two months? It appears to me like something is being hidden.

c a, many websites publish information across more than one page, generally putting those pages in the same section of the website. Often, it is possible to navigate up to the index page for a parent section by using a webpage component commonly referred to as "breadcrumbs", which often appear near the top of the page's content.

You can see the breadcrumbs just beneath the header navigation on the Medsafe website. It includes a link to the "Overview of Vaccine Reports" page, which is the parent page for the report page(s) you have viewed (I'm not sure if you added two annotations to correct a typo in the first one or if it was for some other reason): https://www.medsafe.govt.nz/COVID-19/vac...

This index page contains a list of links to several of these reports, the most recent of which when I am writing this annotation was published on May 5 and includes information up to April 3: https://www.medsafe.govt.nz/COVID-19/saf...

Medsafe appears to be continuing to publish more information here as it becomes available to them, with a lag of about a month.
