Transport to Covid-19 vaccination appointments

If you're a Derbyshire resident struggling to get to your COVID-19 vaccination appointment then you can now book a free return journey to help you attend.

If you don't have your own transport, and you can't use public transport, then Derbyshire County Council's Active Travel team can help you with door to door transport to and from your vaccination appointment.

The parent or carer of the person attending the vaccination clinic can also travel for free. For example if you're the parent of a child aged 12 to 15, or a carer for the person being vaccinated.

You can contact the Community Response Unit who can help you to book your journey.

Please contact them at least 3 working days before your vaccination appointment to allow sufficient time to book your transport.

You can call the Community Response Unit on 01629 535091.
