From an email:

“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. “

    all thanks to america’s venture capitalists. reminds me of the first dot-com boom when I was ordering bags of cat sand from pets.com and getting them delivered for free at zero cost thanks to coupons and promotions intended to ‘grow the business’ with no regard for economics.

    My husband & I took advantage of this today and it was pretty awesome. Not sure how they make the economics works. We would have eventually gotten our flu shots, but having a nurse come to your house to offer a free flu shot makes it a very easy process to make it happen. Done in 10 minutes. Hope they do it next year.
