We have heard from the local NHS that Taxi companies are available to transport patients in the top four vaccination priority groups who use wheelchairs to have their Covid-19 vaccinations. Please ask your local GP surgery for details when your appointment is being booked. All Calderdale GP surgeries have details of the service.
The service is aimed at those who do not have access to their own personal transport and/or are unable to take public transport
Here’s the top four vaccination priority groups:
1 – Residents in a care home for older adults and staff working in care homes for older adults
2 – All those 80 years of age and over and frontline health and social care workers
3 – All those 75 years of age and over
4 – All those 70 years of age and over and clinically extremely vulnerable individuals (not including pregnant women and those under 16 years of age)
