Description

In a global pandemic, you have to take your successes where you can find them.

Among the doom and gloom of three-quarters of a million new cases a day worldwide, it's important to look at how much progress we've made in fighting back against COVID-19.

To date, more than a billion vaccines doses have been given out globally - a number that will hopefully continue to rapidly increase as more supply becomes available and distributed to those who need it most.

Because - as explained on today's Coronacast - the faster we can vaccinate, the less chance we'll have of even worse variants popping into existence.

Also on today's show:

* Why is the rollout of the COVID-19 vaccines constantly referred to as complex when the flu vaccine is rolled out every year to millions of people in Australia?

* Your feedback and experiences on tracking down and getting a vaccine under the next phase of the rollout

* The trouble with organ transplants and COVID-19
