FREE Rides to Vaccination Clinics for seniors 60+ Community Care is still offering free rides for seniors 60+ to vaccination clinics.  All pandemic protocols are in place.  The volunteer waits with the client while they are in the clinic.  We don’t want a ride to the clinic to be a barrier for seniors to get their shot.  Call 613-476-7493 to arrange your free ride.
