20 Jan Grab A Cab Information (Free Taxi to Vaccination Centres) – SBC Communication
Vaccination is our best defence against COVID-19, reducing the risk of being hospitalised or becoming seriously ill from the virus. We want to make sure that all residents eligible for a vaccine in Swindon are able to attend a vaccine appointment, to give them the best protection against the virus. That’s why Swindon residents who are experiencing financial hardship or who have mobility issues and no practical means to get to a local vaccination centre, can book a free return taxi journey to a COVID-19 vaccination site until the end of January 2022.
Anyone who meets this criteria, must book their vaccination appointment in advance using the NHS booking system, and then call V Cars on 01793 701701, quoting our account number and password:
Account number: SW-TTV01
Password: Vaccination Site
Proof of the vaccination appointment will need to be shown to the taxi driver and return journeys must be made within one hour of the appointment to the same address. All drivers have signed up to a COVID-19 safety policy to ensure that all precautions are in place for a safe journey.
The best way to protect yourself, your family and our community from COVID-19, is to book your vaccine.
There are lots of appointments available in Swindon. Visit the NHS website to book an appointment now: www.nhs.uk/covidvaccine
