Uber announced the creation of UberHEALTH—-a service in which Uber will deliver a real-live nurse to your door to administer a flu shot. For one day only—-that day is today—-Uber will operate a pilot program partnering with Vaccine Finder to provide this service free of charge.
The service is available today from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Choose the UberHEALTH option on your Uber app, and once the registered nurse arrives in an UberSUV to the requested location, he or she can administer the shot to up to ten people. Uber asks that you arrange for a “suitable indoor environment” to get the shots.
“Flu season is just around the corner and trying to squeeze in your latest immunization this fall may not be on the top of you To Do List,” Uber wrote in an announcement. “That’s why today we’re leveraging the reliability and efficiency of the Uber platform and launching a one-day pilot program-UberHEALTH.”
