At the request of Senator Kitching, I move:

That the continuing order of the Senate of 18 March 2021 relating to COVID-19 vaccination certificates be amended to read:

(1) That there be laid on the table, by the Minister for Government Services, by no later than the third business day of each month, a report setting out the total number to date:

(a) of updates to the Australian Immunisation Register identifying that a person has received their second COVID-19 vaccination (which then allows a customer to produce their COVID-19 digital vaccination certificate), and

(b) of individual COVID-19 digital vaccination certificates produced:

(i) using a Medicare online account via the myGov app,

(ii) using the Medicare Express app, and

(iii) by contacting Services Australia (either on the telephone or in person).

(2) The first report is due on the third business day of September 2021.

(3) If the Senate is not sitting when an update is ready for presentation, the report is to be presented to the President under standing order 166.

(4) This order is of continuing effect until 31 December 2022.

Question agreed to.
