ShotCuzz bus taking the vaccination to the people
On Tuesday (Sep 21), Manurewa Marae will unveil ShotCuzz, a mobile outreach bus designed to make the
Covid-19 vaccination more accessible in the South Auckland community.
Manurewa Marae Chief Executive Officer Takutai Kemp said the mobile bus would build upon its experience
of operating a vaccination centre at the marae where they have immunised more than 30,000 people against
Covid-19 since April.
“We are taking the vaccinations on the road to the people to make it more accessible to our community,”
Takutai Kemp says. “We are encouraging all people and especially our Māori and Pacific cuzzies to come to
the ShotCuzz bus to get vaccinated.”
ShotCuzz follows hot on the wheels of the launch of ShotBro, one of a fleet of buses that are being repainted
and repurposed to make receiving a vaccination in Auckland easier to get. The buses will be parked at high
volume and high visibility sites across the city.
ShotCuzz will be parked at the Clendon Park, PAKNSAVE car park this Tuesday and Wednesday and
Southmall, Weymouth Rd entry, Thursday and Friday from 9 am to 4 pm.
