Somerville-Cambridge Elder Services (SCES) is encouraging everyone to get vaccinated when they become eligible. We are also supporting the vaccination effort by providing transportation to local vaccine appointments, offering assistance at clinics in senior housing, and sharing reliable information about the through our website and Aging Information Center.
Read on for more information, and to meet some of the great people we’ve come into contact with through this effort….
SCES is offering free cab rides for local older adults to COVID-19 vaccination sites in Cambridge, Somerville and adjacent communities.
The program is open older adults (age 60 and up) from Cambridge and Somerville. We ask that you call well ahead of the appointment, so that we can connect you with a transportation option, and you can plan the most convenient travel time for yourself. Masks will be required during transportation.
For more information about the SCES vaccination transportation program, or to register for a ride, call SCES at 617-440-0995 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
