FREE TRAVEL TO COVID-19 VACCINE APPOINTMENTS IN THE EAST RIDING

Bus company, East Yorkshire is working with East Riding of Yorkshire Clinical Commissioning Group and East Riding of Yorkshire Council to allow people free bus travel to and from their COVID-19 vaccine appointments in the East Riding.

Around 9 out of 10 people in the East Riding of Yorkshire region have had at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, but there are over 28k people in the East Riding who are still eligible to come forward for their booster vaccination.

The free travel offer aims to remove another barrier for people who haven’t yet booked their first or second jab or booster, making it easier for those without a car or on low incomes to get to the vaccination centres.

Like some other vaccinations, levels of protection may begin to reduce in time. It is therefore still vitally important for people to come forward for their COVID-19 booster as it will help extend the protection they gained from the first and second doses and give them longer-term protection.

Ben Gilligan, East Yorkshire’s Area Director, said: “Anything that we can do to encourage people to attend vaccine appointments will help us all get back to normal life quicker, so when the NHS asked us to help them in their mission to get as many people vaccinated as possible, we didn’t hesitate. It’s great that we can play a small part in defeating the virus and helping to beat this pandemic for good.”

Dr Anne Jeffreys, local GP and East Riding of Yorkshire Clinical Commissioning Group Chair, said: “We’re really pleased to be working in partnership with East Yorkshire Buses to offer free transport for those who would otherwise struggle to get to a vaccine site. It’s never too late for people to have their COVID-19 vaccine. The vaccination programme is still open and available to everyone who needs it. I would encourage those people who haven’t yet had any of their vaccines to use the online NHS booking service to book their jab, this way they will receive the required proof of booking for free travel to the vaccination site.”
