Kia ora Athina, 

 

Thank you for your email. Your request is refused under section 18(g) of
the Act, as the information you have requested is not held by the Ministry
of Health (the Ministry), and there are no grounds for believing that the
information is held by another department. The Ministry does not hold
reports about the vaccination status of COVID-19 cases which have been
hospitalised or required ICU treatment.

Case demographic information, including vaccination and hospitalisation
data for the current outbreak is available at: [1]COVID-19: Case
demographics | Ministry of Health NZ

Information about ICU patients is withheld in full under section 9(2)(a)
of the Official Information Act 1982 (the Act), to protect the privacy of
natural persons, including that of deceased natural persons. This is
because, as the numbers of COVID-19 patients in the ICU are so low, this
information may identify the individuals concerned.  

 

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.      

 

 Ngā mihi
