Uber and Walgreens have joined forces to expand access to COVID-19 vaccines for people who don’t have a car or a nearby pharmacy.
The partnership is designed to help drive equitable access to COVID-19 vaccines among underserved communities. As part of the initiative, Uber will provide free rides to Walgreens stores and offsite vaccine clinics. The pilot programs will kick off in Chicago, Atlanta, Houston and El Paso.
The partnership is part of commitment Uber made in December to offer 10 million free or discounted rides to make sure that lack of transportation doesn’t prevent people from getting the COVID vaccine.Source: Chain Storeage
