Birmingham Jab Cab - free taxi service to get a vaccine or booster
A transport facility for people struggling to get to a Covid vaccination site has been set up so citizens can get their first, second or booster jab.
The partnership between the city council, NHS and TOA Taxis (Birmingham) will provide a free taxi service to the nearest vaccination site for people with mobility issues and those who face financial and practical barriers to using private or public transport.
Funded by the NHS it will ensure anyone who wants to get vaccinated will be able to attend a clinic or vaccination site.
Cllr Ian Ward, leader of Birmingham City Council, said: “We know there are many citizens who are keen to get their vaccination but are struggling to get to a site due to mobility problems, lack of assistance or financial barriers. Nobody should be in the position where they cannot get a life-saving jab because of any of these issues so this it is great news that this service is up and running. I would urge anyone who is yet to be vaccinated – whether first, second or booster – to please get the jab.”
People should find their nearest vaccination site and use the instructions to book the cab.
