Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Sunday the city will provide transportation to seniors who need assistance getting to and from the city's vaccination hubs.
New Yorkers aged 65 and over who make an appointment for the vaccine at a city-operated site will be asked whether they have a way to get to and from their appointment, officials say.
If they do not, they will be offered ride options from a number of services, including Access-a-Ride, Ambulette, or a cab.
The city's department for the aging will also reach out to seniors so they know of available options.
The city hopes to provide around 10,000 rides a week.
