Not all NZ Com Games athletes will be immunized

The head doctor for the New Zealand Commonwealth Games team says not everyone will be fully immunized when they go to Delhi.

Dr Lynne Coleman says almost 80 percent of the team have had all the required shots, and it was recommended that immunization was not necessary for the mosquito-born diseases.

Dr Coleman says she can't force people to take all the necessary precautions.

Locals organisers says they have put a lot of effort into controlling mosquitos and teams should not be too concerned about a recent dengue fever outbreak.
