Thank you very much for that question. I would advise all Australians living with disability, their carers, their family members and their workers that there are many avenues now for them to receive vaccinations. The main four channels that everybody, including the family that you have just mentioned—there are now more than 4,600 primary care sites that they can go to. There are the state and territory operated clinics, of which there are now more than 600 across the nation. There are the Commonwealth inreach and hubs, which are being provided through NDIS providers, who are making their facilities available. They in particular have the transportation to assist to bring people in and meet their special requirements, according to their disability. GPs are now doing inreach, and some states pharmacies are now also doing inreach. There are now many channels, and that information is available on the Department of Health's website and also via the NDIA website.
