From: Will Maynard
Dear Chris Hipkins,
Please provide a list of ingredients/chemicals for the pfizer covid19 vaccines for adults.
Please also provide a seperate list for the pfizer covid19 vaccine for ages 5 to 11 year Olds.
Please also specifically advise if the age 5 to 11 year old pfizer covid19 vaccine contains tromethamine instead of phosphate buffered saline.
If this does contain tromethamine please provide evidence why we are injecting this intermuscular and it is required within the vaccine for 5 to 11 year olds? FDA website states it must be injected only intravenously and no where else as this WILL cause blood clots leading to heart attacks.
All these are legally required for medsafe to make a decision etc.
From: C Hipkins (MIN)
