Uber is providing booking a vaccine appointment through its app


1 min read

Uber is starting to provide a new feature – booking a vaccine appointment using its app.

Due to companies suffering during 2020, Uber is banking on a big comeback. The new feature was announced today under the rubric “go anywhere, get anything.” Uber aims with this feature to attract lockdown weary customers back to its platform – whether to travel somewhere or to get something delivered.

The vaccine appointments are being offered nationwide through the company’s previously announced partnership with Walgreens. Since February, Uber has been offering free rides to Walgreens stores for people who book a vaccine appointment but do not have transportation and live in an underserved community. The company says it’s committed to offering 10 million free or discounted rides to people from those communities.


Now that partnership includes vaccine appointments at participating Walgreen drugstores. Walgreens says vaccinations are now available at more than 9,000 locations across the country as eligibility expansion continues.

Uber’s main rival Lyft similarly has the goal of offering 60 million rides to and from vaccine appointments to people from low-income or high-risk communities.
