Taxi voucher assistance for vaccination appointments
Funded taxi travel to COVID 19 vaccine appointments at vaccination centres will be available to anyone who receives a government benefit through Centrelink (except the Family Tax Benefit).
Providing funded taxi travel to and from vaccination appointments will help to remove travel costs as a barrier to vaccination. This is a trial service for both first and second dose appointments.
The taxi booking will be made at point of vaccination booking, and the individual will be provided with a return trip ID so they can book their paid return trip following their vaccination.
People can access this service by calling the Victorian Coronavirus Hotline on 1800 675 398.
