S.R Oates(UCL-MSSL), D. Grupe(PSU), S.B.Pandey(UCL-MSSL)
report on the behalf of the Swift UVOT team:

The Swift/UVOT began observing the field of GRB 061222A
92 seconds after the BAT trigger (Grupe et al., GCN Circ.5954).
No optical afterglow candidate is detected in the XRT error circle
within the first V and White exposures or in later coadded images.

The 3 sigma upper limits for each UVOT filter are given
below:
