Pfizer vaccine effects on Lactation

Paul Jones made this Official Information request to Ministry of Health

The request was successful.

From: Paul Jones

Dear Ministry of Health,

With reference to the following link;

https://www.health.govt.nz/our-work/dise...

Under section Breastfeeding it states;

"If you’re breastfeeding (as with all vaccines on the New Zealand Immunisation Schedule), there are no safety concerns about getting the Pfizer vaccine (Comirnaty)."

"When you're vaccinated, this can also provide some protection against COVID-19 for your baby through your breastmilk."

Would you provide the documentation and evidence to support those two above statements.

Pfizers document released in the following link;

http://labeling.pfizer.com/ShowLabeling....

On page 32, section "11.2 Lactation" states;

"Risk Summary"

"Data are not available to assess the effects of Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine on the breastfed infant or on milk production/excretion."

This means Pfizer own documentation is contrary to the Ministry of Health's statements and understanding of the above as if no data is available then you can't make any claims.

Yours faithfully,

Paul Jones

The request for information about the health effects on lactation hasn't been answered. The ministry needs to answer it - this is of public interest.

Evidence MOH/IMAC cited and referenced is disturbing.

As is another confirmation that they are treating previously unused and withheld risk analysis profile , mrna comirnaty technology, the same as any other products and technology used in NZ

IMAC are behind this as usual. Nikki Turner and Helen Petousis-Harris primarily.

This tactic is being applied to the Nikki Turner promoted exemption criteria.

IMAC are documented involved in all previous contraindications and exclusions (lack there of) in all previous and current editions of the MOH immunisation handbooks.
