A homeless advocate hopes health authorities listen to those on the frontline about the best way to reach at-risk communities for vaccination.
In April, Te Tuinga Whānau Trust's Tommy Kapai Wilson travelled from Tauranga Moana to Wellington to pitch his idea for a 'jab cab' to Ministry of Health officials.
Similar to the 'Shot Bro' buses that rolled out in Tāmaki Makaurau months later, the vans would have provided transport to and from a Covid vaccine clinics.
While the wheels never got turning on the jab cab, Tommy Wilson hopes the government learns a thing or two.
