Residents with limited means of transport can now get help from Essex County Council to attend pre-booked Covid vaccination appointments.

The Essex Wellbeing Service is providing taxis so people without their own means of transport can attend vaccination centres free of charge, whether or not you are after an initial shot, or second or third booster jabs.

If you would like help getting to your Covid jab appointments, email or call 0300 303 9988.

The phone line is open Monday to Friday from 08:00 to 17:00 and from 10:00 to 14:00 on Saturdays.

Callers’ need will be verified, and they will be asked to provide their booking reference or a screenshot of their appointment confirmation.
