    Heads up. Our Language Matters.

    In this episode we talk to Renza Scibilia. A diabetes advocate, international speaker and media spokesperson for most of her life. We chat about how Health organisation's navigate putting out information on how to co-exist with COVID. How can patients navigate the maze of messaging and overcome the uncertainty that is leading, in some cases, to a lack of confidence in vaccination and the health system?   MatterofVax is brought to you by ghlf.org.au

    Getting Vaccinated and Staying Safe For Life

    Getting Vaccinated and Staying Safe For Life

    Then there were three. We start with the tough questions about COVID vaccines on everyone’s lips then ask; “should we have a choice of vaccine ?” We broach the new subject of booster shots for immune compromised patients. Is that a priority for Australia now FDA has approved in the US? With flu season here, meningococcal season next, is Australia keeping pace with vaccine schedules ? What impact could the COVID-19 vaccination story have on vaccine uptake and is that something we all need to be thinking about now ?  We talk to top immunisation expert, Professor Robert Booy and take the questions of GHLF patients on this topical subject.  MatterofVax is brought to you by ghlf.org.au

    How Do Communities Manage Risk of a Pandemic?

    How Do Communities Manage Risk of a Pandemic?

    It’s easy enough to find yourself at risk in a pandemic. For so many patients, caregivers, family and friends, managing that risk is already a way of life. But with COVID-19 the risk has amplified and begs the question about life in future for patients and those at higher risk. 

    We talk to Professor Greg Dore, an Infectious Diseases Physician, at St Vincent’s Hospital, Sydney, Australia, to find out who is at risk and learn why we all need to understand and manage it.
