Free Rides from Maine Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS)
Individuals must have a vaccination appointment before requesting a ride. Rides will be provided to and from the appointment. These may be shared rides so DHHS can provide transportation to as many people as possible, and face masks will be required.
DHHS can provide transportation for appointments that are scheduled Monday through Saturday from 7:00 am – 4:00 pm. At least 48 hours before the vaccine appointment, individuals should call 1-855-608-5172 to reserve a ride and should have the following information ready:
Date and time of appointment
Name, address, and phone number of the facility where receiving the vaccination
MaineCare members who already use a Non-Emergency Transportation broker to arrange rides to their MaineCare-covered services should call that same broker for rides to vaccination clinics. This program is for MaineCare members who are ineligible for Non-Emergency Transportation as well as any other Maine resident who does not have access to reliable transportation to get to their vaccination appointment.
Yarmouth Community Coronavirus Task Force Also Provides Transportation to Appointments
The YCCTF has a pool of local volunteers available to drive you to your appointment! Contact Dale Shields at email@example.com.
