This week on the program we look at COVID-19 vaccine access and inequality.

We begin with an interview with Nadia Mattiazzo, acting CEO of Women with Disabilities Victoria, about how the COVID-19 vaccine roll out is going for people with disabilities and what is stopping women with disabilities from accessing the vaccine.

Then we speak with Deborah Gleeson, Associate Professor of Public Health at La Trobe University, about global vaccine inequality, and the push to waive intellectual property rights to break the monopolies of pharmaceutical companies and allow developing countries to make their own COVID-19 vaccines and medical products to fight the pandemic.
