Free Rides For Vaccine Shots Featured

Written by

The State of Ohio is spending $7 million dollars to provide transportation to ensure that everyone can get their COVID-19 vaccine shot.

The money is being funnelled through the Ohio Department of Transporation (ODOT), and will be used to pay for ride on public transit in the 70 counties where there is a public transit system. In the 18 that don't; County Health Departments will arrange for purchased transportation services.

Ohio Governor Mike DeWine explains, “We want to make sure all Ohioans who want the vaccine have equal ability to get the vaccine,”  and he says “Equity includes having access to transportation services.”

There aren't a lot of details available yet on exactly how this will all work yet, though, as the State is planning to explain it to local transit authorities next week.
