    Not having transportation shouldn’t be a barrier to vaccination, which is why we announced with the White House that Uber would offer free rides to all Americans going to get vaccinated. Beginning today, four free rides (up to $25 off each) are available in your Uber app through July 4.

    As part of the road to recovery, the White House has set an important goal for 70 percent of the US population to be fully vaccinated by July 4. While we’re making great progress, we still have work to do. In fact, less than 7% of 18-24 year olds and less than 19% of 25-39 year olds are fully vaccinated in the US.

    We are proud to work with the White House to help achieve this goal and make it as easy as possible for all Americans to get vaccinated. We’ve built a new easy-to-use in-app experience, integrating vaccines.gov data directly into the Uber app, where users will be able to find nearby available vaccines from tens of thousands of local providers, in addition to information about supply and manufacturers at each location. We will be providing free rides (up to $25 each) for each leg of the trip so people can easily get to and from both shots.

    How it works*

    After you have booked an appointment (many vaccination sites require one) and you’re ready to ride to or from your vaccination:

    1. Open the Uber app and tap ‘Vaccine’

    2. Tap ‘Get your free ride’, between 6am and 8pm, through July 4

    3. Enter the zip code of your appointment to find the location you are going to or coming from

    4. Select your provider location and your ride option, free up to $25 each way. Your drivers will be paid in full, but if you want to give some extra thanks to your drivers, please remember to leave a tip!

    Our Door-to-Door Safety Standard

    Our safety policies are still in place to help keep everyone safe. Consistent with the latest CDC transportation guidelines, we still require face coverings and masks for both riders and drivers, even when vaccinated.


    *Terms: Up to $25 off each ride, up to four (4) UberX or WAV rides per person to and from eligible vaccination sites between 6am and 8pm, daily; Each of 2 round trips must be 3 weeks apart, between 5/24/2021 and 7/4/2021 only. See app for other terms and conditions.

    This is what Scientology Patron Meritorious Joy Villa calls "Blasphemy."
