WEVax Transportation Program
TRANSPORTATION PROGRAM EXTENDED
The Windsor-Essex Regional Chamber of Commerce is delighted to announce the extension of the WEVax Transportation Program thanks to High Priority Community Funding (HPC) from the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. Additional support for this program from HPC funding will extend the program.
People living in designated "Hot Spot" zones who are unable to coordinate their own transportation due to financial, physical or other challenges will continue to have access to complimentary taxi service to and from vaccine clinics.
