SCES offering Free Transportation
to nearby COVID-19 Vaccination Sites
Somerville-Cambridge Elder Services (SCES) is offering free transportation, via one of SCES’ transportation providers, for local older adults to nearby COVID-19 vaccination sites.

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. Currently, individuals 75 and older are eligible. Those who are between 65 and 74 years of age, and those who have co-morbidities, will be eligible in the near future.

Visit the State’s website at http://www.mass.gov/coronavirus for the latest information on eligibility and vaccine sites. All locations currently require appointments, and it may take several weeks to get one. A call center option for vaccine appointments will be launched soon.

For more information about the SCES vaccination transportation program, or to register for a ride, call SCES at 617-628-2601 or email info@eldercare.org.
