Ontario Providing Accessible Rides to COVID-19 Vaccination SitesPublished on June 22, 2021
This government understands that some Ontario residents may face barriers in traveling to a vaccination site.
Building on recent success in getting millions of people vaccinated, the government is investing $3.7 million in a partnership with the Ontario Community Support Association (OCSA) to help people with disabilities, including seniors with mobility issues, get to and from vaccination sites by connecting eligible individuals with staff and volunteers.
Individuals must have a vaccine appointment booked for the date of transportation requested and One caregiver or support person will also be permitted to accompany the person on this accessible transportation initiative.
This program will ensure that transportation is not a barrier to vaccination and will help many Ontarians with mobility issues receive their vaccine.
Getting as many Ontarians as possible vaccinated is a critical part of the government’s strategy to fight COVID-19.
