Support getting to vaccination appointments

Derbyshire County Council is working hard to make sure that residents stay safe and well during the Covid-19 pandemic and that includes making sure that everyone has access to a vaccination. That’s why there is now help on offer if you are struggling to attend your Covid-19 vaccination appointment.

If you don’t have your own car, and struggle to use public transport, then you might be able to get help from Active Travel. There is a cost to this service depending on how far you’re travelling. If you live in Derbyshire and are in financial hardship and can't afford to travel to and from your vaccination appointment, you may be eligible for free transport if you or your partner receive certain benefits.

Our Community Response Unit can help you find out if you qualify for Active Travel support. The Community Response Unit is open on Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm. You can call them on 01629 535091 or complete the online form at
