Missouri Starts Transportation Resource Guide for Expanding OVID 19 Access Throughout State

The Missouri Department of of Health and Senior Services (DHSS), along with support from the Missouri Advisory Committee on Equitable COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution, started  a new statewide transportation guide to assist in addressing and eliminate barriers to COVID-19 vaccine access. Get a Ride” is now embedded throughout every aspect of Missouri’s  COVID-19 vaccine rollout infrastructure including the state’s COVID-19 hotline, MOstopsCovid.com, and through Missouri’s Regional Implementation Teams. These resources can be tailored by location for each vaccine event and site. In addition to serving individuals with disabilities and those over age 60, the Area Agencies on Aging have received funding to also help caregivers of older adults to help them get to their vaccine appointments. This guide is the result of efforts made to increase access to free and low-cost transportation resources across Missouri’s rural, suburban and urban communities to administer the COVID-19 vaccine.
