People living in Essex, who have no means of transport, can now get help to attend prebooked appointments.
If you are struggling to attend your booster jab appointment because of transport issues, you can now get help from Essex County Council. The Essex Wellbeing Service is now able to organise transport for Essex residents who are finding it difficult to organise a way to attend their vaccine appointment. Transport will be provided by taxi service.
This service is free of charge and can also be used if you need transport to get to your first or second dose appointments. Essex residents who would like help getting to their appointments can email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0300 303 9988. The phone line is open Monday to Friday from 8am to 7pm and from 10am to 2pm on Saturdays. Callers’ need will be verified, and they will be asked to provide their booking reference or a screenshot of their appointment confirmation.
