From: Maxwell

Dear Ministry of Health,

I write as New Zealand citizen.

Can I please request all available correspondence between the COVID-19 Vaccine Independent Safety Monitoring Board (CV ISMB) and the COVID-19 Vaccine Technical Advisory Group (CV TAG) since their inception?

This should include any joint meeting minutes, current and historic safety reports, current and historic safety evaluations, current and historic adverse reaction reports, emails and/or memos related to vaccine safety, etc.

Yours faithfully,

Maxwell

We are contacting you in accordance with section 18B of the Official

is for a very large volume of information. Your request may be refused
under section 18(f) of the Act as the information requested cannot be made
available without substantial collation or research.

 

If it is possible for you to narrow the scope of your request by selecting
a shorter time frame and a more specifying a topic, we may be able to
provide you with information.

 

Please respond by 11 November 2021 so that we can consider your refinement
in our response to your request.

 

We look forward to receiving your response.
