how many employees currently processing ACC covid vaccine injury claims

Tracy Livingston made this Official Information request to Accident Compensation Corporation

Response to this request is long overdue. By law Accident Compensation Corporation should have responded by now (details and exceptions). You can complain to the Ombudsman.

From: Tracy Livingston

Accident Compensation Corporation,

1) How many employees are currently processing ACC claims for covid vaccine injuries? I have seen your page showing hundreds of claims still waiting to be processed and that was just up until Oct 2021.
2) Please include all correspondence between Medsafe, MOH and ACC that discusses the issue of staffing numbers required to process covid vaccine injuries claims in a timely manner.
