Medicare Data and Vaccination Rates

In Parliament, Questions

The Hon. T.A. FRANKS (14:46): Supplementary: noting that the Premier has said that he will speak to his counterparts in New South Wales and Victoria about their data based on the census data, will the Premier also talk to the federal counterpart, Greg Hunt, Minister for Health, about Medicare data being used to ascertain vaccination rates, which seems the more appropriate data?

The PRESIDENT: I gave the honourable member a fair bit of move there on a supplementary.

The Hon. S.G. WADE (Minister for Health and Wellbeing) (14:46): I don’t know what the honourable member is referring to, but I will certainly consider her question and bring it to the attention of the Premier. I understand you were wanting me to raise it with the Premier. I’m also not—

The Hon. T.A. Franks: No, I am not. The Premier said he will talk to the other premiers. Why don’t you talk to the federal government about Medicare data?

The PRESIDENT: I am going to move on. The Hon. Dr Centofanti has the call.

The Hon. N.J. CENTOFANTI: My question is to the Minister for Human Services

The PRESIDENT: Sorry, I didn’t see the Hon. Ms Pnevmatikos. I will give her the chance to ask a supplementary. It was her original question.
