Proof that a cash incentive helps get your vaccination rates up, and it doesn't even have to break the bank. 

A Swedish study has found that just handing out 200 Swedish krona, or about 33 New Zealand dollars, was enough to increase rates by 4 percent. 

One of the lead authors of the study is Armando Meier out of the university of Lausanne and Armando joined Mike Hosking.
