Free Rides to Vaccination Sites for Older Adults

By Somerville Cambridge Elder Services

We are offering free transportation, via one of SCES’ transportation providers, for local older adults to COVID-19 vaccination sites in Cambridge, Somerville and adjacent communities.

This is an ongoing program.
Every day.

We provide rides to your pre-scheduled vaccination appointments, timing depends on the appointment you've made and the distance to the site.

Ages: Adult and Senior Adult.

Participants must be age 60 and up from Cambridge or Somerville.

Additional information

SCES is encouraging those who are eligible to get vaccinated, and we do not want transportation to be an obstacle for the people we serve. If you are an older adult (age 60 and up) from Cambridge or Somerville, and you need a ride to your vaccination site, please give us a call!

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.
