Health is at the top of most people’s concerns at the moment. Doing everything we can to help ourselves and others and making sure that the services we receive are the best they can be is right up there.
JAB CAB Free Taxi Service
We are all aware of the benefits and importance of getting a COVID jab to protect ourselves, our families and friends and our communities.
Some people though may be struggling to get to their nearest Jab Centre.
To help remove the barrier for many that live in more rural areas Norfolk and Waveney CCG, in collaboration with health and care partners, are funding a Jab Cab service until 31 March 2022. This service offers everyone in Norfolk and Waveney a free taxicab return journey to a vaccination site to receive a COVID-19 jab. This can be arranged from school, home, or your place of work, so it’s easy and convenient.
The service is eligible for people who are having a first, second, or booster jab, and you can attend any vaccination site or walk-in clinic that’s convenient to you.
In order to claim your free journey, simply book your COVID-19 jab online or check which walk-in centre you’d like to visit. Then call a participating local taxi company and book your journey. Click here to see a list of participating taxi companies and find out more about the Jab Cab.

HAVE YOUR SAY ON LOCAL PHARMACY SERVICES
The Health and Wellbeing Board carries out a survey of pharmacy services in the county every three years, in order to understand what is working well and identify areas that need improvement.
The results of the survey will help to ensure that services meet the health needs of Norfolk residents in the future.
They would be very grateful if you can take 10 minutes to complete the confidential survey, and encourage your friends, family and residents to do it too. Your views and experiences are important to them and they want to hear from as many people as possible.
