ASE made this Official Information request to Wellington City Council

Currently waiting for a response from Wellington City Council, they must respond promptly and normally no later than (details and exceptions).

From: ASE

Attn Wellington City Council,

I am seeking information relating to the council's policy to require "My Vaccine Pass" to access council services and facilities.

Does the council hold any long-term safety data for any COVID-19 inoculations? If so, what is that data?

Does the council hold any long-term efficacy data for any COVID-19 inoculations? If so, what is that data?

Considering what is and what is not known of long-term safety and efficacy of COVID-19 inoculations, what consideration has the council given to the status of COVID-19 inoculations as "experimental" medical treatments? If this has not been considered by the council, then why has this not been considered?

Excluding hypothetical modelling data, has the council based this policy on data indicating that, in settings where this policy is implemented, any COVID-19 inoculations prevent disease transmission of currently circulating COVID variants? If so, what is that data?

What is the reason(s) for implementing this policy to show a "My Vaccine Pass" to access council services? What basis of data and evidence, both for and against, formed the basis of implementing this policy? If this policy was implemented on the basis of something other than data and evidence, then on what basis was this policy based on?

Considering the stated reason(s) for implementing this policy, does the council hold any risk/benefit analysis, demonstrating that the benefits of this policy outweigh the risks?

Considering the stated reason(s) for implementing this policy, does the council hold any cost/benefit analysis, demonstrating that the benefits of this policy outweigh the costs?

What ethical, legal, and human rights considerations has the council given to this policy? If these issues have not been considered by the council, then why have they not been considered?

What consideration has the council given to this policy's effect on people to exercise their human rights to informed consent (including rights to informed refusal) to medical treatment? How does this policy respect individual human rights to not be subject to medical experimentation? If these issues have not been considered by the council, then why have they not been considered?

What consideration has the council given to this policy's effect on individual human rights to privacy and confidentiality of medical information? How does this policy respect individual human rights to refuse medical treatment, with or without reason? How does this policy allow people to not be subject to discrimination on the basis of their personal medical status? If these issues have not been considered by the council, then why have they not been considered?

What consideration has the council given to this policy's effect on individual human rights, and how that may expose proponents, advocates, and/or actors on behalf of such polices to culpability for human rights violations, crimes against humanity, and/or war crimes? If these issues have not been considered by the council, then why have they not been considered?

If a person is pressured into receiving this medical treatment in order to access council services and facilities, what liability does the council accept for any adverse reactions such person may suffer, as a result of this medical treatment? If this has not been considered by the council, then why has this not been considered?

Thank you,
ASE
