Incentives relating to Covid-19 vaccine administration

ASE made this Official Information request to Ministry of Health

Response to this request is delayed. By law, Ministry of Health should normally have responded promptly and by (details and exceptions)

From: ASE

Dear Ministry of Health,

In direct or indirect relation to any purchase, acquisition, option to purchase, or any other means of acquiring products or services,

In direct or indirect relation to any vaccines, inoculations, or any other pharmaceutical treatments or interventions intended, used, marketed, or otherwise sought or obtained implicitly or explicitly solely or primarily in relation to SARS-Cov-2 and/or Covid-19,

While I respect that certain elements of any product acquisition may contain commercially sensitive material, I believe that it is in the public interest that the following questions be answered as completely as possible:

Are there any conditions, restrictions, limitations, requirements, or any other incentives or disincentives relating to the quantity of these products administered, and/or the time-frames in which they are administered?

If so, what are they?

Yours faithfully,

AS Emet

Dear Ministry of Health,

I am writing today to follow up on your request #H202114083.

The information I requested was not provided.

Please note that my inquiry was about “any conditions, restrictions, limitations, requirements, or any other incentives or disincentives relating to the quantity of these products administered, and/or the time-frames in which they are administered”. The request for information is not about the “quality” of these products.

I look forward to the requested information being provided soon.

Thank you,

AS Emet

Attn Ministry of Health

The Ministry of Health has failed entirely to address the questions I have asked on 11 Oct 2021: Are there any conditions, restrictions, limitations, requirements, or any other incentives or disincentives relating to the quantity of these products administered, and/or the time-frames in which they are administered? If so, what are they?

The Ministry of Health has also conflated this request with one or more unrelated requests.

If these issues are not resolved by the end of the week, I will have no choice but to file a formal complaint with the Office of the Ombudsman.

Thank you,
ASE
