Quantifiable Benefits of the Gene Therapy

Chuck Schooner (Account suspended) made this Official Information request to Ayesha Verrall

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Chuck Schooner (Account suspended) to read recent responses and update the status.

From: Chuck Schooner (Account suspended)

Dear Ayesha Verrall,

Given the experimental gene therapy/vaccine does not prevent a person from getting Covid-19 or transmitting the virus please provide any and all documentation that confirms how

The Ministry of Health determine if the gene therapy is doing anything?
How does the Ministry of Health measure the results of this gene therapy?
What are the measurable benefits of this gene therapy and how are these determined?

The costs of the gene therapy are easily determined with over 130,000 reactions including death, abortion, heart conditions, potential future fertility problems for the innocent, strokes, paralysis. Please note vaccine adverse reactions are normally under reported by a multiple of four so I expect these numbers to be significantly higher. These are also short term so the long term could be even worse. There could be millions of people in New Zealand with long term health problems including our most vulnerable.

Please provide all benefits of this gene therapy and how they have been measured?

Yours faithfully,

Chuck Schooner

Dear A Verrall (MIN),

I also a require a response from you. As Associate Minister of Health this is also in your remit so please respond.

The "Costs" of this gene therapy are likely to fall onto the NZ Taxpayer so your response is also required. I will rephrase.

Please provide

Benefits of Gene Therapy on the Overall Health of New Zealanders
Please provide a "forecast" of monetary and social costs on the New Zealand Health system given the large number of side effects to date.

Are you expecting thousands of dependants due to ill health from the experimental gene therapy in twelve months or so?

Yours sincerely,

Chuck Schooner

Kia ora Chuck,

As the COVID-19 vaccination falls under the responsibility of the Minister for the COVID-19 Response, his office is still best placed to answer this question.

If you have questions about the broader health sector, these are generally best directed to Minister Little, the Minister of Health.

You can read a list of Minister Verrall's delegations as Associate Minister of Health at this link: https://dpmc.govt.nz/our-business-units/...
