Welcome back to the Hot Topics podcast with Neal Tucker.

Finally some hope with an imminent COVID vaccine. But how good is it really and where is the data? Meanwhile general practice has been set up as the saviour of the nation but can we really vaccinate the entire population? The Committee of Horribly Absurd Orders thinks so or is it part of their long-game to say CHAO to GPs? And also some good news that we may not have to store this new vaccine at -70oC after all...

For published research we look at SSRIs for acute COVID in the community, suspect rapid antibody tests and the harm from delayed cancer treatments.
