Moderna, Uber partner to increase access to COVID-19 vaccines

Listen

Uber and Moderna inked a new partnership Jan. 12 focused on increasing access to vaccine safety information and potentially coordinating rides to COVID-19 vaccine appointments through the rideshare app.

The two companies will work together to offer credible information on vaccine safety through Uber's in-app messaging feature.

Uber and Moderna will also collaborate with public health and other organizations to identify opportunities to expand access to COVID-19 vaccines, including incorporating ride scheduling directly into the immunization appointment process. They are also exploring potential integrations with vaccine providers' systems to text reminders and let patients book rides ahead of their first or second immunization appointments.

The partnership will initially target Uber users in the U.S., but the companies plan to expand their collaboration globally in the next few months.
