Transportation available for COVID-19 vaccinations
home52 and Council on Aging can coordinate and provide appropriate transportation to adults age 60+ who are unable to get to a COVID-19 vaccination site..
As Ohio begins offering COVID-19 vaccinations to older adults, many individuals will need assistance getting to and from vaccination sites. Council on Aging (COA) and home52 Transportation can help.
Using COA’s network of transportation providers, home52 Transportation can coordinate and provide appropriate transportation to adults age 60+ who are unable to get to a vaccination site.
How it works
- Vaccination providers notify home52 Transportation when a patient needs transportation
- Older adults may also call to request transportation assistance
- Transportation will be provided regardless of enrollment status in a COA program
- Transportation can be provided for both the first and second vaccination dose
- When a request is submitted, home52 Transportation coordinators will follow up with the older adult within 24 hours to arrange appropriate transportation
- Transportation is paid for via COA and home52 Transportation. There is no cost to the older adult. However, funding for this service is limited. Transportation services will be provided as long as funding is available.
