How to get to the appointment
If you do not have access to a vehicle to get your appointment, please choose one of the following transportation support options:
Option 1: Make arrangements for a ride from a friend, family member or support person;
Option 2: Regular users of Specialized Local Municipal Transit (Handi-van, care-a-van, Activan or Milton access+) can contact their service provider directly to arrange transportation to and from their appointment, free of charge;
Option 3: Those without access to specialized transportation can book a private taxi directly with select service providers (telephone numbers listed on halton.ca/COVIDvaccines) to arrange transportation to and from their appointment, free of charge.
When travelling with individuals from outside of your household, please remember to wear a mask, keep as much distance as possible between yourself and others as possible and wash your hands frequently. Refer to COVID-19 Public Health Guidelines: Car Travel for more information.
Halton Region will continue to roll out the vaccine, as supply allows, to ensure that everyone in Halton who wants the vaccine can receive it. Even after receiving the vaccine, please continue to keep your guard up and continue practicing all public health measures that remain in place, including staying home except for essential purposes, wearing a mask, and physical distancing from people outside of your household.
