An immunologist says new vaccine eligibility should be celebrated. 

From today anyone over the age of 12 has the ability to book in to get the Covid-19 jab.  

Despite this some are set to face long waits.  

Malaghan Institute immunologist Graham Le Gros told Kate Hawkesby it needs to be targeted.  

"The regions, Māori community, Pacific community and really make sure that they're really safe too, because they're the ones that live in high-density conditions and they're very vulnerable to this virus if it gets into them."
