Number of serious adverse events reported following covid-19 vaccine injection as at 17 Dec 2021

Response to this request is delayed. By law, Department of Health should normally have responded promptly and by (details)

Dear Department of Health,

The Australian public have a right to know the number of serious adverse events reported following covid-19 vaccine injections. The public interest underpinning this request is clear and profound.

The department and TGA are not disclosing this information of their own volition and it is more than reasonable to contend that the public may require this information to make informed decisions and to provide informed consent. Please accept this request for information in accordance with the FOI Act.

a) Please provide a document recording the number of serious adverse events reported following covid-19 vaccine injection correct up until 17 December 2021.

b) Please also provide a document recording the number of serious adverse events reported in persons under the age of 18 correct up until 17 December 2021.

I contend that the public interest is sufficient for the agency to release these documents without charge.

Yours sincerely

Jaay-H
