As the NHS COVID-19 vaccination programme continues to roll out it's important that resident's book and attend their appointment.

Warwickshire County Council is reminding residents of the travel options available to anyone who cannot access public transport and how to reduce the risk of COVID transmission on journeys.

The Warwickshire large vaccination site at the NEAC Stoneleigh Centre is open to anyone who has booked an appointment through the national booking system. For people who do not have their own means to attend their vaccine appointment, there are travel alternatives:

  • Ask someone with your household or bubble to take you to your appointment.
  • Contact NHS volunteer responders on 0808 196 3646 to take you to your appointment.
  • Contact voluntary transport to take you to your appointment. This service is offered if the provider has availability, booking in advance is required.
  • Residents in Stratford, Warwick and Rugby areas can contact VASA on 01789 262889 and press option 1, Monday to Friday, 9am to 4pm or email transport@vasa.org.uk
