Vaccine willingness is affected by many factors. Increasing people's willingness to vaccinate has been one of the main responses to the pandemic. The paper provides data on vaccination willingness in Australia as of January 2021 and April 2021. The data includes, as well as the changing trend of overall vaccination intentions since January 2021. Data were sourced from the ANU COVID-19 Impact Surveillance Survey Project, ANU Centre for Social Research and Methods. The willingness to vaccinate against COVID-19 and the factors influencing vaccine willingness were investigated. We found that the overall vaccination willingness of Australians increased from January 2021 to April 2021, but there was still a decline in the vaccination willingness of some Australians. The study found that in addition to the influencing factors such as gender, age, education background, people's perception that they may be infected with covid-19 was significantly related to the decline in vaccination willingness. Women, younger people, those with low educational backgrounds, and those who did not speak English at home and believed they were less likely to contract the COVID-19 were more likely to show a decline in vaccination willingness.
