I would like a fully breakdown of the ingredients of childhood vaccines in New Zealand

Caitlin Smith made this Official Information request to Ministry of Health

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Caitlin Smith to read recent responses and update the status.

From: Caitlin Smith

Dear Ministry of Health,

Please could you provide me with a breakdown of all ingredients in the following childhood vaccines provided in New Zealand:

DTap-IPV-Hep B/Hib

Please could you also provide information on why the DTap-IPV-Hep B/Hib is required to be administered 3 times to babies within a 5 month period? Same for the PCV10 vaccine (administered 3 times in a 12 month period) and why is the DTap-IPV vaccine required to be given again at 4 years if it is effective and given to kids when they are babies?

Yours faithfully,

Ministry of health via IMAC acknowlege that MMR0 when given at <12 months 'does not count'

MMR1 MMR2 and so on are still required

IMAC statement on MMR0 <12months
"there is no efficacy anwer"

This is a damning statement.

MMR program has reached the endpoint with final possible timing change from
Oct 1 2020 revised down to 12 and 15months.

There is no other timing change available to protect the program failure. These timing changes will exacerbate the failings more publically over coming years.

Having sold historical M/MMR program failure as an 'immunity gap' issue derived by clerical shortcomings in 2019, IMAC director Nikki Turner in September 2021 declared national schedule timings as "a roadblock" 'Maybe don't mind the gap after all'

Signalling the state of those involved in the process.

MOH admit as per international literature that DTaP is a failed product which 'creates life long susceptibility in anyone received a single dose of the product'


NZ Output.

'Pertussis vaccination failure in the New Zealand pediatric population.'
