An Uttlesford charity is providing a shot of support to the Covid vaccination programme.

Uttlesford Community Travel is transporting residents to appointments at Stansted Health Centre, the Lord Butler Leisure Centre in Saffron Walden and Basildon Hospital.

The transport service is being used by the over-60s, the disabled, those unable to access public transport, or those with no public transport because of rural isolation.

UCT is also available to take people to other medical appointments and other transport needs such as shopping and transporting key workers.

General manager Malcolm Barrell said: “We don’t want people worrying about getting to their appointments, so our minibuses are standing by to provide transport for our residents. We are here to help in these unprecedented times.”

Minibuses have been converted to ensure passenger safety, with features such as screens.
