Due to the small number of cases, disclosure control has been applied to avoid breaching the privacy of individuals involved. Article 25 (Personal Information) of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 applies.
Whilst there may be public interest in details surrounding COVID-19 related deaths, the granular details requested could, if released, identify specific individuals. Release of the personal information requested could negatively impact living relatives or other connected individuals and it is considered that their right to privacy outweighs the public interest supporting the release of the information requested.
Information gathered in order to register a death does not include the vaccination status of the deceased.
