At the request of Senator Dodson, I move:

That there be laid on the table by the Minister representing the Minister for Health and Aged Care, by no later than 3 pm on 1 September 2021, the geographic vaccination rates for First Nations Australians by state/territory, Statistical Area Level 4 and local government area, showing the number and rate of first and second vaccinations.

I seek leave to make a short statement.

The PRESIDENT : Leave is granted for one minute.

The government will supply this data within the available constraints of collected data sets and privacy considerations. Further, the Department of Health releases over a thousand data points on the vaccine rollout daily, which can be found on their website.

Question agreed to.
