Request for evidence per Bloomfield public claims

Robin Benson made this Official Information request to Ministry of Health

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

From: Robin Benson

Dear Ministry of Health,

This is an official request for information pursuant to the Official Information Act 1982 ("Act").

Ashley Bloomfield made the following public statement:

"We also know that people can get Covid-19 more than once and the evidence does suggest that vaccination provides better protection than prior infection"

Please provide:

1. The evidence upon that Bloomfield is referring to in this claim, and

2. The basis, as a result of analysis, assessment or other consideration of the evidence, for making this claim. In other words, the logical process by which Bloomfield arrived at the conclusion made in his statement above.

I confirm that I meet the requirements of the Act in making this request.

Should you require evidence concerning my meeting requirements pursuant to section 12 of the Act please respond without delay outlining:

(a) what evidence you require and an email address to which such information can be sent, and

(b) the genuine and reasonable grounds for requiring such evidence.

Yours sincerely,

Robin Benson
