    “Herd immunity” is a phrase we’re hearing more and more when it comes to vaccination – meaning that a high enough proportion of Australians are immune to COVID that there’s very little virus circulating any more.

    The trouble is that some experts are saying that we can’t get to herd immunity unless we vaccinate children and teenagers.

    Dr Norman Swan looks at the international debate.
