No specific assessment has been made. Individuals booking COVID-19 booster appointments can choose a site that meets their accessibility needs and transport requirements. This is designed to allow for increased flexibility and choice, with 98% of the population in England now living within 10 miles of a vaccination site. Whilst there is no national policy in relation to providing such transport, we are aware that some local areas do offer this as part of their operating model. Where that is the case, we would expect appropriate safety and infection control measures to in place.
