TGA FOI, Department of Health

Dear Ms Whiteley

Thank you for your email below dated 11 October 2021 in which you make the following request under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act):

"I would like to request a list of all the ingredients within the Pfizer, AZ and Moderna COVID19 vaccines to be able to make a fully informed decision before taking these vaccines."

At the outset, I note that your query is not a valid request under the FOI Act. The purpose of the FOI Act is to provide access to documents, not to answer specific questions or make copies of information which is publicly available. However, in order to assist you, I would like to provide you with some publicly available information which is relevant to your request.

A full list of ingredients for all of the vaccines is listed on the TGA website at: https://www.tga.gov.au/covid-19-vaccine-.... Further, as part of the provisional approval process, the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) requires that a comprehensive Product Information (PI) document and Consumer Medicine Information (CMI) leaflet be made publicly available for healthcare professionals and consumers. Both documents contain a full list of the ingredients found in COVID-19 vaccines.

If you are interested in accessing this information with respect to the Pfizer vaccine, we refer you to: https://www.tga.gov.au/covid-19-vaccine-...
If you are interested in accessing this information with respect to the AstraZeneca vaccine, we refer you to: https://www.tga.gov.au/covid-19-vaccine-...
If you are interested in accessing this information with respect to the Moderna vaccine, we refer you to: https://www.tga.gov.au/covid-19-vaccine-...
If you are interested in accessing this information with respect to the Janssen-Cilag Pty Ltd (Janssen) vaccine, we refer you to: https://www.tga.gov.au/sites/default/fil.... I note that whilst the Janssen vaccine has received provisional approval for its COVID-19 vaccine, this vaccine is not currently included in Australia’s COVID-19 vaccination program and is not currently supplied in Australia.

I trust that this information assists you. As the information you have requested is publicly available, I consider your request dated 11 October 2021 to be withdrawn.
