Chris Seeks Parity And Reports From MRHA For Coroners' Reports Re Covid
To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, pursuant to the Answer of 13 June 2022 to Question 14409 on Coronavirus: Vaccination, whether the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) differentiates between coroners' reports which find vaccination to be the cause of death and those which cite vaccination as only a possible contributing factor of death; and if he will take steps to ensure that the outcomes of considerations by MHRA of coroners' reports are published.
The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) does not differentiate between Yellow Card reports according to the findings of any associated coroners’ reports it receives. All information received, including coroners’ reports, is considered through its signal detection and assessment process.
The MHRA has no plans to publish the information requested as it is provided confidentially by individuals and could identify those affected. However, for Coroner’s Regulation 28 reports to prevent future deaths received by the MHRA, its responses to coroners which outline the assessment of the safety concern raised and any proposed actions, are published online by the Courts and Tribunals Judiciary at the following link:
Please see the previous referenced Written Question below:
To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, pursuant to the Answer of 1 June to Question 2325 on Coronavirus: Vaccination, what account was taken of Coroners' verdicts in producing that Answer; what weight he attaches to Coroners' verdicts in identifying the cause of a death; and if he will make a statement.
The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) considers all coroners' reports it receives which list vaccination as a possible contributing factor of death. Coroners' verdicts form part of the range of evidence collected and analysed by the MHRA, including self-reporting tools such as Yellow Card reports.
