DCC have put together this advice to help people get to their Covid-19 vaccination appointment. Unfortunately, neither Covid-19 nor Flu vaccinations are supported by NHS patient transport or the Healthcare Travel Costs Scheme (HTCS). As would have been the case with the recent flu vaccinations, the expectation is that patients make their own way to and from the delivery site.
If you are unable to drive yourself, or get a lift from a family member, you may be able to use public transport. The Traveline website allows people to check various public transport options to get to each site, as well as a journey planner. We have also put together a summary of bus services serving each location at the bottom of this page.
If you are unable to get a lift or access public transport, or there are no suitable public transport services in your area, you may be able to find transport via the network of voluntary organisations which operate across Devon. PLEASE NOTE: in order not to overwhelm services, you should only use community transport if you are unable to get a lift or use public transport. There is no guarantee that transport will be available through voluntary schemes. All schemes operate differently, and there may be a charge for these services.
Below is a summary of bus services serving each vaccination delivery location. This information is up to date as of 18th December 2020 – more locations may be added as the vaccination roll out program is developed. Please visit Traveline for timetable and journey planning information.
