Cabs 4 Jabs from PRC Streamline Taxis

PRC Streamline Taxis  are currently working  with the local community to raise funds to provide over 1000 free cab rides for those in the  Bournemouth, Poole, Christchurch, Wimborne, and Ferndown areas who cannot afford to pay to travel for their Covid – 19 vaccinations.

Some people are concerned about using public transport, exposing themselves to more people than they would in a taxi so we want to make it safer for those who are more vulnerable and the elderly to travel alone or with one other person from their household or bubble. Public Health Dorset would rather they didn’t ask neighbours, not in their bubble, for lifts as this might also spread the virus. We already provide discounted fares for vaccination trips but having seen Cabs4Jabs on the TV, thought that we should go the extra mile and get involved.

PRC Streamline are not in a position to offer this service for free as drivers are already working on a much lower income due to the pandemic and the reduction in work. We are working closely with many of the vaccination centres in the BCP area and beyond so  please get in touch  as soon as you receive your Covid appointment.

We’d like to thank those who have donated and would be grateful if you can all share the link and spread the word to others who can donate and support this initiative.

We are working closely with many of the vaccination centres in the BCP area and beyond so  please get in touch  as soon as you receive your Covid appointment.

If you want to book a free cab to get to your Covid Appointment please call  01202 37 37 37. You’ll need to confirm your appointment time and location please.

PRC Streamline Cabs for Jabs fundraising team will only use your donation to pay for taxi fares for local older and vulnerable residents who require assistance getting to and from their Covid vaccination appointment only.
