Coronavirus disaster: WA booze bus converted into moving vaccination clinic

A police booze bus has been converted into a new ‘maxi vaxi’ vehicle, in a bid to keep WA’s COVID-19 jab rate trending upwards.

Announcing that several Bunnings stores across WA are set to become vaccine hubs in the coming weeks, Premier Mark McGowan and Commissioner Chris Dawson teamed up to reveal the government’s latest mobile vaccination strategy.

The former booze bus will be able to deliver hundreds of jabs a day, and will be deployed across WA — ensuring vaccination equipment and staff can be easily transported to new pop-up clinic locations.

A new State-run community vaccination clinic will also open on Monday at Carramar Village Shopping Centre. Additional clinics are being planned for Mandurah, Ellenbrook and Canning Vale, to open from early November.

The pop-up Bunnings clinics will each provide up to 250 vaccinations per day, for people to drop in without an appointment. Premier Mark McGowan urged ‘time poor’ tradies in particular to take advantage.
