Uber, Walgreens, PayPal to cover COVID-19 vaccine rides for needy in U.S


Walgreens is partnering with Uber and PayPal in an effort to give needy people rides to pharmacies so they can be vaccinated against COVID-19, the companies said Monday.

The companies announced a Vaccine Access Fund that covers the cost for rides to vaccination sites for people who may not be able to afford them.

The companies said people can donate to the fund directly through the Uber or Uber Eats apps using a new donate feature supported by PayPal Giving Fund. Donations can also be made through PayPal’s website.

The three companies announced they’re making an $11 million joint donation.
