If all goes well Australians will start receiving coronavirus vaccinations from next month. But the types of vaccines on offer are not created equal. High-risk groups will get a vaccine that’s been shown to have 95 per cent efficacy -- but the vast majority of Australians will get a locally produced shot that studies have so far found to be much less effective. Is jumping in with what we’ve got on hand the best approach? Or are we better off waiting until we can get our hands on a more effective vaccine? Also, what’s going on in Brisbane’s quarantine hotel where six positive cases are found to have been linked? Norman Swan and Tegan Taylor answer your questions on Coronacast.
