Uber has pledged to offer free journeys to mass COVID vaccination centres in England. The firm has said they will be looking to assist the “most vulnerable“ with a mode of transportation to receive their coronavirus jabs.

Uber has said it will cover £15 of passengers’ trips to the seven mass vaccination hubs across the country.

People due to get their coronavirus vaccine could be eligible for the free ride to their appointment.

The some-what controversial ride-hailing app is offering 28,000 free vehicles, with the promotion extending to all trips, including wheelchair accessible Uber Access vehicles, and Uber Assist vehicles, for those needing assistance getting in and out of the private hire vehicle.

Trips will be covered up to the value of £15. If the ride costs more than £15, the person who was booked will be liable to pay the remaining cost of the trip, via their chosen payment method.

The journey will need to start or finish at the vaccination centre in order to qualify, and is subject to availability.
