The latest ‘cab off the rank’ in the race to get Aucklanders vaccinated has been launched, with a new taxi service for those who haven’t been able to get to vaccination centres.
The Northern Region Health Coordination Centre announced the new initiative at the Ōtara Vaccination Centre with partners Auckland Coop Taxis (Blue Bubble).
Accessing the taxi service:
The taxis will operate between the person’s residential address and the city’s 15 community vaccination centres, which also includes the airport drive-through vaccination site at Māngere. Large shuttle bus taxis will be available to larger groups.
We know that there may be some in our community that this service still may not be appropriate for, including those with more serious health or mobility issues and when we speak to these people, we will be offering access to our home visits outreach programme if they would prefer.
