As a frequent traveler, I’m careful to get a flu shot every year, and today in New York City, Boston and Washington, D.C., my favorite car service, Uber, is making getting a flu shot both easy and free. Today only, Thursday, October 23, between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. ET, Uber is partnering with national website Vaccine Finder, New York-based health-provider-search app Pager and Passport Health to provide free, on-demand flu shots and flu prevention kits to Uber users in these three cities who click the pop-up “UberHEALTH” screen on their Uber apps.
Alternatively, you can use Vaccine Finder to search for a vaccination provider in New York City, Boston or D.C., then click on the Uber link under the location you would like to go to and have Uber take you there.
This one-day pilot program will provide a maximum of 10 flu shots or one flu prevention kit to each Uber user who makes an UberHealth request, based on availability. And in a move that further pays forward your decision to keep yourself and others healthy, for each UberHEALTH request, Uber will donate $5 to the Red Cross to support vaccination efforts for children nationwide. Here’s hoping we’ll all stay flu-free this season!
As a reminder, Uber is now offering a free ride (up to $30) for new users (sign-up link). Note: I get a free ride if you sign-up with my link, so thanks in advance if you use my link! With great transfer partners like United and Hyatt, 2x points on travel & dining and a 50,000 point sign up bonus, the Chase Sapphire Preferred is a great card for those looking to get into the points and miles game.
