We're being told that Melbourne's latest COVID-19 outbreak wouldn't have been so bad if more people had been vaccinated, but even if you are technically eligible, trying to actually get a jab can be very difficult.
Making matters worse is the fact that every state and territory has its own systems and processes, and there is very little information publicly available about how many vaccines we have and where.
The Quicky speaks to a journalist who has been trying to track Australia's vaccination program and an epidemiologist to find out why our rollout continues to be so slow.
