An immunologist is confident New Zealand can get 90 percent of people vaccinated by Christmas, even if other countries can't. 

Malaghan Institute Director Graham Le Gros told Mike Hosking we have an advantage. 

"Some of the other countries actually have some big problems, they have a significant minority that won't get vaccinated, they can't get around it. We actually are pretty homogeneous in terms of understanding about the nature of disease and all that kind of stuff."
