Vaccination Data Since 13th December 2023

Chris McCashin made this Official Information request to Health New Zealand

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

From: Chris McCashin

Dear Health New Zealand,

A previous OIA response dated 27th February showed a series of emails that were sent by Steve Kirsch to the executive team at Health New Zealand. Mr Kirsch raised serious concerns about data released by NZ Whistleblower Barry Young and his analysis showing significant numbers of excess deaths associated with the Pfizer vaccine. There were a number of emails sent, offers to discuss and talk, requests for Ministry of Health's own analysis by their experts and as far as I can tell there was no response. On the 13th December he mentioned that following notification and the executive team at Health NZ being notified and not acting they could be held criminally liable. As it stands I understand there has still been no response. Are you able to provide

- The vaccination data for New Zealanders including total number of vaccinations given, total number of people that have died after receiving a vaccination, date of death, age, and gender for the period after December 13, 2023.
- Any analysis completed by the Ministry of Health on the data released by Steve Kirsch or your own internal databases. Please let me know what teams, epidemiologists consultants did the analysis. If no analysis was done, please explain why.
- All internal communications, including emails, texts, instant messages, WhatsApp messages, formal and informal memos between Health NZ staff notified by Steve Kirsch discussing excess deaths, Barry Young and Steve Kirsch.
- Please ensure the executive team members who received these communications are signatories to this response.
- Please also publish vaccinations given and total number of people who have sadly passed included on the letterhead response as well as in excel format.
- Any memos, formal / informal, communications discussing excess deaths and potentially taking the Pfizer vaccine out of circulation (note Astrazeneca is no longer available) which functions the same as the Pfizer vaccine

I also submitted a previous OIA requesting the total spend on lawyers / consultants to erase the data. Can you please update this request to provide the total spend on these consultants. I note Mr Kirsch has offered to remove the data himself if he can discuss what it shows with experts in New Zealand - why doesn't Health NZ just do the analysis and have the discussion with Steve Kirsch and get the information removed without using lawyers? Surely that is a better use of taxpayers money?

In the interest of getting this resolved quickly given the potential criminality and negligence associated with these warnings I will be putting in complaints with Health and Disability Commissioner, Ombudsman, Justice and Police.

It might be that the data released can be easily refuted by NZ epidemiologists - surely a number of the media personalities you have rolled out have opinions / evidence to the contrary?

With Health NZ attempting to lock Mr Young up and erasing the data from the internet it only fuels conspiracies. I think New Zealanders are only looking for transparency.

Please not some of the internal comms might be a double up with another OIA that Mr Bell has requested where it appears you are currently attempting to curate that into something that doesn't implicate anybody.

Yours faithfully,
Chris

Thank you for your request of 20 June 2024 for the following information:

 

The vaccination data for New Zealanders including total number of
vaccinations given, total number of people that have died after receiving
a vaccination, date of death, age, and gender for the period after
December 13, 2023. 

 

- Any analysis completed by the Ministry of Health on the data released by
Steve Kirsch or your own internal databases.  Please let me know what
teams, epidemiologists consultants did the analysis.  If no analysis was
done, please explain why.

 

- All internal communications, including emails, texts, instant messages,
WhatsApp messages, formal and informal memos between Health NZ staff
notified by Steve Kirsch discussing excess deaths, Barry Young and Steve
Kirsch.  Please ensure the executive team members who received these
communications are signatories to this response.

 

- Please also publish vaccinations given and total number of people who

- Any memos, formal / informal, communications discussing excess deaths

This email is to let you know that Health NZ needs more time to make a
decision on your request.

 

 

The Act requires that we advise you of our decision on your request no
later than 20 working days after the day we received your request.
Unfortunately, it will not be possible to meet that time limit and we are
therefore writing to notify you of an extension of the time to make our
decision, to  14 August 2024.

 

This extension is required because the volume of information and
consultations necessary to make a decision on your request are such that a
proper response cannot reasonably be made within the original time limit.

 

If you have any questions, please contact us
at [1][email address].

 

Partial Transfer of Request

 

Your request also asks for information which is more closely aligned with
the functions of Pharmac and the Ministry of Health . 

 

For this reason, Health NZ has decided to transfer part of your request to
Pharmac and the Ministry of Health under section 14(b)(ii) of the Act. 
You can expect a response from Pharmac and the Ministry of Health in due
course.

 

The partial transfer to Pharmac is for the following:

 

Any memos, formal / informal, communications discussing excess deaths and
potentially taking the Pfizer vaccine out of circulation (note Astrazeneca
is no longer available) which functions the same as the Pfizer vaccine.

 

The partial transfer to the Ministry of Health is for the following:

 

Any memos, formal / informal, communications discussing excess deaths and
potentially taking the Pfizer vaccine out of circulation (note Astrazeneca
is no longer available) which functions the same as the Pfizer vaccine.

 

Any analysis completed by the Ministry of Health on the data released by
Steve Kirsch or your own internal databases.  Please let me know what
teams, epidemiologists consultants did the analysis.  If no analysis was
done, please explain why

 

Under section 28(3) of the Act you have the right to ask the Ombudsman
to review any decisions made under this request. The Ombudsman may be
contacted by email at: [2][email address] or by calling 0800
