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.

Today only, Thursday, October 23, in NYC, Boston and D.C., an UberHEALTH screen on the Uber app allows you access to free flu prevention.
Today only, Thurs., October 23, in NYC, Boston and Washington, D.C., the UberHEALTH option on the Uber app provides free, on-demand access to flu prevention.

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.

Today, each Vaccine Finder listing in these three cities will feature an Uber logo to easily enable a ride to that vaccine provider.
Today, each Vaccine Finder listing in these three cities will feature a hyperlinked Uber logo so that you can easily schedule a ride to that vaccine provider and access free flu prevention.

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!
