Massachusetts announced a new state rule that anyone can get a vaccine when accompanying someone age 75 and older to a vaccination center.
It’s a novel idea as many seniors no longer drive or may not have anyone to drive for them. Of course there are always enterprising individuals to benefit from such a rule. Offers of driving a senior in their luxury car, giving them cash or dining out, buying them a gift are some of the thing I have read. Uber and Lyft drivers are also offering free services.
Massachusetts Governor is warning against getting a ride from complete strangers. Seniors must be extremely cautious to avoid becoming victims of inscrutable individuals who might have ulterior motives.
