Is it true that the Government have blocked the Office of National Statistics from issuing data on how many people have died after receiving vaccination and how many have had side effects following vaccination?

A simple yes or no answer is fine.

Thank you for your enquiry.

We are an independent producer of official statistics. We can confirm that we have not been blocked from reporting on the number of deaths and adverse effects of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Deaths that have been directly attributed to the vaccine, due to adverse reaction can be found in table 12 of our Monthly Mortality Analysis. There are currently 0 deaths registered with the aligning ICD codes for this. However, should this change, they will be updated in this table.

We are currently developing our analytical plans with an intention to publish detailed vaccination statistics soon. Once we have finalised these plans a publication date will be announced on our Release Calendar.
