Mobile vaccination buses will be rolled out in Auckland from Thursday, in the style of Mr Whippy ice cream vans.

A similar initiative was launched in Australia at the start of the month, and buses became known as “Jabba the Bus”.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has challenged the public to come up with a better name, but has ruled out “Busey McBusface”.

Auckland’s city business district has lost $80 million over the latest lockdown.

Heart of the City chief executive Viv Beck is calling on the government to consider ‘Covid Loans’.

“We’re keen to see innovative ideas to support businesses and not load the country up with more debt than necessary,” she said.

“Many people have told us they have not had good access to capital and ‘Covid Loans’ could be a solution that could be implemented using existing arrangements.”

’Covid Loans’ would allow businesses to access funding with much more manageable repayment options, similar to student loans,
