The request was successful.

From: Steve Sharp

Dear Ministry of Health,

I would like to know the breakdown of the numbers of partially immunised, fully immunised, and unimmunised people that have contracted measles with the recent outbreak.

A recent newspaper article quoted the Ministry of Health saying there had been 260 cases in New Zealand in recent months.

Yours faithfully,

For your privacy I've censored your passport number from the site.

There is no requirement to prove your identity, but giving a postal address should be sufficient to prove you are a New Zealand resident eligible to make a request. If you need to do this I recommend giving it to them by other means, to protect it from appearing here.

Thank you. I'm not sure who or where to send the information to without posting it here. Maybe someone from the MOH will let me know via this thread.

I'd wait to see how they respond to your last email.

These annotations don't go to MoH. You could email them directly. You can find the email address FYI is using for MoH here: https://www.fyi.org.nz/body/moh/view_email

Or use any other contact details you can find on their website. You should quote the reference number they assigned above.

Dear Mr Sharp

Thank you for your reply. Would you be able to send a scanned copy of the
photo page of your passport so that we are able to confirm your
eligibility?

You may wish to send this directly to [email address] from a private
email address.

Many thanks
