Poll: What should the new Mr Whippy-style vaccination buses be called?

Ripu Bhatia Reporter from Auckland Stuff

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”.

What do you think the vaccination buses should be called?

Here are some ideas readers have emailed in to Stuff, but feel free to comment your own!
