COVID-19 Vaccine Injections on HMAS Sydney

We're waiting for Phillip Sweeney to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Department of Defence,

Around 10 March 2021 media reports revealed that around 80% of the crew of HMAS Sydney had reported ill after receiving an injection of a COVID-19 vaccine.

The documents I seek are documents that:
(i) would confirm the date on which these injections were given;
(ii) would confirm whether these injections are compulsory for navy personnel;
(iii) the type of vaccine used (ie Pfizer or AstraZeneca); and
(iv) how many sailors were transferred to the hospital for treatment?

Yours faithfully,

Phillip Sweeney

FOI, Department of Defence

Good morning Phillip

 

I would like to inquire as to whether you would consider the documents you
requested on 12 March 2021 relating to the COVID vaccinations on the HMAS
Sydney being released to you on an administrative basis rather than
through the FOI process.

 

Please advise your preference at your earliest convenience.

 

Kind regards
