The Windsor-Essex Regional Chamber of Commerce is making it easier for Windsor and Essex County residents to get to vaccination clinics.

People living in our region “Hot Spot” zones who are unable to coordinate their own transportation due to financial, physical or other challenges will now have access to complimentary taxi service to and from vaccine clinics. This program is sponsored by Green Shield Canada, Hydro One, Sun Life, the Rotary Clubs of Windsor and Essex County and W/E Rotary Catch The Ace. Transportation services will be provided by Vets Cab in Windsor and Sun Parlor Taxi in Leamington.

“This is a critical program,” stated Windsor-Essex Chamber President & CEO, Rakesh Naidu, “we have reached a point where the reopening and recovery efforts are directly tied to getting maximum people vaccinated. Reducing the barrier to vaccination and making vaccination sites easily accessible is key, especially, for those that have mobility and financial challenges”.

The Windsor-Essex Regional Chamber of Commerce will oversee the transportation program along with community partners, the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit, Vets Cab and Sun Parlor Taxi.

Transportation partners will ensure that all safety protocols are in place for riders and drivers.

Windsor and Essex County residents living in “Hot Spot” areas who have been scheduled for a vaccine can contact Vets Cab at 519-256-2621 or Sun Parlor Taxi at 519-326-9063 to take advantage of this program and arrange transportation.

Billing from the transportation partners will go directly to the Windsor-Essex Chamber, no payment is required by the rider.
