The advice for people under 40 wanting a COVID-19 vaccine has been mired in even more confusion after a series of mixed messages from health experts and politicians. Chief health officers from two states are refusing to endorse a message from the Prime Minister this week, which encouraged people under 40 to see their GP and ask for an AstraZeneca vaccine.

Epidemiologist Associate Professor Linda Selvey and GP Dr Vyom Sharma join Kirsten Aiken to discuss the issue.
