Community Care Northumberland to Provide Free Transportation to COVID-19 Vaccine Clinics
As the COVID-19 vaccine rollout continues and with the opening of COVID-19 vaccine clinics in Northumberland County, Community Care Northumberland (CCN) will ensure members of our community can attend their vaccine appointment by offering transportation at no cost to those receiving the service.
This service is available to any person living in Northumberland County who requires transportation to attend their COVID-19 vaccine appointment. CCN’s specialized transportation vehicles and screened volunteer drivers, including those from YMCA Northumberland’s Operation Red Nose, will provide free, accessible transportation from the individual’s residence to the vaccine clinic and back home.
“The inability to access affordable, reliable transportation should not be a barrier for those who are willing and eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine,” says Trish Baird, Chief Executive Officer of Community Care Northumberland. “Community Care Northumberland is happy to continue supporting the efforts of public health and the needs of our community, and we thank our specialized drivers and volunteer drivers for helping provide this essential service.”
Transportation Booking Information
Individuals who have a scheduled COVID-19 vaccine appointment and require transportation can phone Community Care Northumberland’s transportation team at 1-866-768-7778 to register and request a ride to their appointment.
