Seniors and individuals with mobility issues can get a free ride for their COVID-19 vaccination appointment.
The province recently announced that it is extending the Accessible Drive to Vaccines program till the end of March next year.
“Extending this program will mean more people can get their vaccinations and boosters, providing greater protection from COVID-19 to all Ontarians,” said Raymond Cho, Minister for Seniors and Accessibility.
Eligible individuals must be a person with a disability within the meaning of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005. They must also have a vaccine appointment booked for the date of transportation requested.
Accessible Drive to Vaccines is delivered in partnership with the Ontario Community Support Association. The program connects eligible individuals with rides to vaccination sites across the province, provided by staff and volunteers who will pick them up and take them home after their vaccine appointment.
