Kia ora Chris,

 

Thank you for your email. 

 

The New Zealand Government has granted Pfizer indemnity from any claims
that may arise from use of their COVID-19 vaccine (Comirnaty). It is
important to note, it is not unexpected for pharmaceutical companies to
seek indemnities from governments in circumstances where clinical trials
are restricted, or where a purchase agreement is concluded before full
trials are completed. Further details about the indemnity granted to
Pfizer are commercially sensitive.

 

In any case, treatment harm caused by COVID-19 vaccination is covered by
ACC if the criteria for treatment injury are met. This means that there’s
a physical injury caused by the vaccination, that’s not a necessary part
or ordinary consequence of the treatment. Further information is on ACC’s
website:
[1]www.acc.co.nz/covid-19/providers/general-covid-19-provider-information.

 

Under section 28(3) of the Act you have the right to ask the Ombudsman to
review any decisions made under this request. The Ombudsman may be
contacted by email at: [email address] or by calling 0800 802
602.
