“Our taxi, ride-hail, and paratransit drivers have been on the frontlines during this pandemic and now they need to be at the front of the line for the vaccine. Over the last 10 months, these drivers kept our city moving. They helped get doctors and nurses to hospitals, they delivered meals to the home-bound, and they put themselves in grave danger. It would be an absolute injustice to these essential workers if they were not prioritized for the vaccine.”

Matthew Daus, in a guest editorial that appeared in The New York Daily News,
titled, “Race to Vaccinate Drivers: Cabbies and Uber Drivers
Deserve Better Than What They’re Getting.”
