• Jab Cab

    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.

    Local Authorities Q&A for Energy Companies’ Priority Services Register for people who are Clinically Extremely Vulnerable

    What does this scheme mean for CEVs?
    • Energy suppliers are required by the regulator, Ofgem, to hold a register of customers who
    may need additional support called a Priority Service Register.
    • If you are clinically extremely vulnerable you fall within Ofgem’s definition of a customer in a
    vulnerable circumstance and therefore you should speak to your supplier if you would like to
    be added to this register. You will not need to provide evidence that you are clinically
    extremely vulnerable.
    • The additional services provided to you will include accessible billing, safety measures when
    someone from the energy supplier needs to enter your home, being able to nominate
    someone to manage communications on your account and whether a prepayment meter is
    appropriate for your situation.
    • Suppliers have also agreed to provide additional support to consumers in financial difficulty
    during the pandemic, which could include pausing debt repayments, stopping
    disconnections, sending you prepayment top ups if you cannot leave the house and referring
    you to independent debt advisors for support.
    • Please contact your energy supplier for more information or visit:
    Further information is also available
    at: https://www.ofgem.gov.uk/consumers/household-gas-and-electricity-guide/extra-helpenergy-services/priority-services-register
    Will CEVs be required to provide evidence that they are vulnerable to receive help?
    • No. Energy companies do not usually require evidence when adding vulnerable consumers
    to the PSR, as this is usually done on the basis of a conversation between the consumer and
    the supplier. Therefore, we do not expect that suppliers will ask for proof of CEV status.
    Is this scheme only available to CEVs?
    • No. The Priority Services Register is available to all vulnerable consumers. For more
    information on the definition of who is classed as vulnerable, please see link here
