Buses repurposed as mobile vaccination centres for remote communities

With the adoption of Covid-19 vaccines comes the great challenge of vaccinating the entire population of the UK. For those living in towns and cities, this is not a problem. They can quickly reach a large vaccination hub or their local GP. There is a greater challenge to reach those living in more remote locations at a time when car sharing to vaccination sites is not possible due to the remote communities because of the outlawing of mixing of households, which eliminates car sharing or family members taking them to get a vaccine. Often this population is elderly and therefore more vulnerable. This creates an opportunity to look for novel ways to reach these remote citizens to ensure that they too can safely be vaccinated and receive medical care.
