“Wanted to let you know that on Thursday, Uber is bringing house calls back with UberHEALTH across more than 35 US cities–including right here in DC.
While vaccination remains the single best flu prevention option, less than 50% of adults receive a flu shot. So to help, from 11am until 3pm we’ll be delivering wellness packs for $10. If you request and receive a wellness pack, you’ll also have the option to request a free flu shot from a registered nurse for up to ten people – at the single touch of a button.
Open your Uber app between 11 am and 3 pm
Select the ‘UberHEALTH’ option and request. Pro Tip: Please select a suitable indoor location prior to UberHEALTH arriving.
Upon arrival, users will receive a wellness pack for $10 and the option to request a flu shot from a registered nurse from Passport Health for up to ten people – at no cost.
If you request a shot, the nurse will handle all paperwork and consent forms
We expect demand for UberHEALTH to be high, so your patience is appreciated.
Cost is $10 for wellness pack which includes a UberHEALTH water bottle, tissues, hand sanitizer, lollipop and recyclable UberHEALTH tote. “
