C-19 Vaccinations – Volunteer Transport

C-19 Vaccinations – Volunteer Transport

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 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.  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 voluntary services serving each vaccination delivery location.  This information is up to date as of 1st April 2021 – more locations may be added as the vaccination roll out program is developed.
