A St Albans taxi company have stepped up to help to provide free trips to make sure residents don’t miss out on their COVID-19 vaccine appointments.
Corker Cars are taking part in Cabs 4 Jabs and offering a free ride for those who are worried about not being able to get to or afford transport to their jab appointment.
Max Yasin, operational director said after hearing from customers’ difficulties getting to appointments, they wanted to do something to help.
He said: “It’s all about awareness at the moment, we want to let people know so they don’t miss out on something like this.
“It’s not even about the free taxi ride it’s about having the assurance you can get to the appointment.
“Money is tight for everyone and we want to put it out there so people don’t put off their vaccination simply because they can’t get to or can’t afford to get to their appointment.”
Max added that all their cars are COVID safe are a cleaned after ever trip and by a specialist system once a week.
The company launched a JustGiving page to allow the community to get involved at justgiving.com/crowdfunding/stalbanscabs4jabs
