Vernon Township offering free rides to get vaccinated
Vernon Township has launched a no-cost coronavirus vaccination ride assistance program to help residents with transportation challenges get to their appointments.
The program follows a COVID-19 call bank outreach effort initiated three months ago that has reached more than 7,000 residents.
Township Supervisor Jonathan Altenberg said there is vaccine hesitancy from a large part of the population that needs to be addressed before the virus mutates.
