County and City officials have taken steps to ensure transportation will not be a barrier to getting vaccinated.
Anne Arundel County Executive Steuart Pittman and Annapolis Mayor Gavin Buckley announced on April 13 a collaborative effort to provide county residents with free and discounted transportation to and from the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium mass vaccination site, which opens April 15.
Details for scheduled transportation with the County are available in the county press release. The City will provide free shuttle bus service from 9 am – 5 pm on Saturdays and Sundays, between the stadium and Church Circle.
“Anne Arundel County has prioritized our most vulnerable residents throughout the vaccination rollout, and we will continue to do so at the new mass vaccination site by providing free, convenient transportation options for our residents,” said County Executive Pittman. “We won’t allow transportation barriers to stand in the way of anyone getting vaccinated. Thank you to the Maryland Department of Health, Anne Arundel County Fire Department, and all our partners for getting this site ready to start vaccinating residents April 15.”
Residents 55 and older with a disability are also able to use the Department of Aging and Disabilities’ Taxi Voucher program to schedule transportation for their vaccine appointment. This program offers discounted taxi vouchers with participating cab companies. More details on the Taxi Voucher program are available online.
