We said

Thank you for your enquiry requesting deaths registered in England by vaccination status by date of death, age, and sex from January 2021.

Unfortunately, we do not hold analysis showing daily deaths by vaccination status. To fulfil this request, we would need use a high level of statistical skill and judgement to create bespoke analysis. Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, Public Authorities are not obligated to create information to respond to requests. We therefore consider this to be information not held. Further, owing to the number of variables involved, even if we were to create this information, we would be unable to disclose this as it would be considered disclosive.

However, we do hold the following analysis which may be of interest: Deaths involving COVID-19 by vaccination status, England. This is an analysis of deaths involving COVID-19 and all cause deaths by vaccination status that occurred between 1 January and 24 September 2021 in England.

This publication includes weekly age standardised mortality rates for deaths involving COVID-19 by vaccination status and a detailed analysis of deaths involving COVID-19 which occurred in fully vaccinated individuals.

Table 6 of the same publication shows a comparison of the number of deaths within 21 days of first and second dose.

This is the latest analysis we hold however future releases will be announced on Release Calendar.
