JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Need a ride to get your COVID-19 vaccine? Uber can help!
Uber is offering four free rides (up to $25 each) to get your COVID-19 vaccine between now and July 4, anytime between 6 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Uber implemented this initiative to help reach the White House’s goal to fully vaccinate 70% of the U.S. population by July 4.
According to the Center for Disease Control less than 7% of 18- to 24-year-olds and less than 19% of 25- to 39-year-olds are fully vaccinated in the U.S.
Uber integrated the information from vaccines.gov into their app and created a user-friendly way to find vaccines nearby through local providers.
Here’s how it works:
- Book your COVID-19 vaccine appointment (many locations require an appointment)
- Open the Uber app and tap ‘Vaccine’
- Tap ‘Get your free ride’
- Enter the zip code of your appointment location to find where you are going to or from
- Select your provider location and your ride option, free up to $25 each way.
- Your drivers will be paid in full, but if you want to give some extra thanks to your drivers, please remember to leave a tip!
