Uber Will Give Free Or Discounted Rides To 10 Million Riders Getting The COVID-19 Vaccine

Uber supports the COVID-19 vaccination by offering 10 million free or discounted rides to people going to get the coronavirus vaccine.

According to USA Today, Uber will take individuals to and from their destinations and will do the same when it’s time for them to go and get their second dose.

Apparently, the popular ride app has partnered with organizations that serve communities of color—National Urban League, Morehouse School of Medicine, and the National Action Network—with the hopes of helping these communities get the vaccine.

Other organizations are expected to partner with Uber soon, USA Today reports.

“We hope our technology can help make the largest-ever global immunization campaign a success and deliver the benefits of the vaccine quickly, effectively, and equitably,” reads a statement by Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi.

At the beginning of the pandemic surge, Uber offered a similar service to those working in health care, as well as senior citizens.

Lyft also followed suit, in April the ride app discounted more than 200,000 rides of health care workers for the month.
