Uber is rolling out new features in its app to allow US customers to book COVID-19 vaccine appointments and book car rentals. He said it would be possible to book an appointment at Walgreens Pharmacy for a vaccine and ride an Uber to get there, he said during Evento online CEO Dara Khosrowshahi. The feature, which expands a deal between Uber and Walgreens announced in February, reflects the increasing availability of COVID-19 vaccines in the United States, as each state has opened up vaccines to all adults.
For Uber, more vaccines mean a faster return to the race than it was before the pandemic, and thus more revenue after the crash due to the health crisis. Business is already starting to improve, and March was the best month since the outbreak.
The company has also announced partnerships with Avis, Hertz and other car rental agencies. US customers can now book rental cars through the Uber app, with discounts of up to 10 percent in credit to spend on other Uber services.
