Indiana University Health is offering free rides to any COVID-19 vaccine site in the state.

Ride services are available to anyone in Indiana. The appointment does not need to be at an IU Health vaccine clinic.

To get a ride:

– Call 1-888-IU HEALTH (1-888-484-3258) and choose option 9

– Hours are 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. Monday through Friday; 8 a.m. – 12 p.m. on Saturday

Callers will be asked if they have insurance, in case their insurance provider already covers the cost of transportation.

If the caller does not have insurance, or their plan doesn’t cover transportation, an IU Health team member will coordinate a ride based on the caller’s appointment and location.

IU Health is partnering with Lyft to carry out most of these rides. For areas that don’t have Lyft, IU Health is working with other transportation providers.

The rides cost no money. Interpreters from IU Health’s Language Services team are available to help if a caller does not speak English.
