The ShotCuzz mobile vaccination bus was unveiled to the South Auckland community in the Pak'NSave carpark in Clendon today.
Following hot on the wheels of ShotBro, one of a fleet of buses that are being repainted and repurposed to make receiving a vaccination in Auckland easier, the services will be in high-volume, high-visibility sites across the city.
Greens co-leader Marama Davidson said it was important that people from Manurewa Marae, local people respected and known, are also helping.
Manurewa Marae chief executive officer Takutai Kemp said the bus would build on the work of operating a vaccination centre at the marae where they have immunised more than 30,000 people against Covid-19 since April.

"The ShotCuzz bus is a community approach to increasing vaccinations and engagement in our community," said Kemp.
"Our people, our community have been telling us 'bring the vaccines to the people and come out into our community'. So that's what we've done."
