Car-hailing app Uber has announced it will offer discounted rides for people booking journeys to receive the Covid-19 vaccination in the UAE.

Riders will be able to get 25 per cent off two Uber rides – up to Dh20 each way – to and from public vaccination centres across the Emirates.

The offer is valid from Monday until Monday, February 8, and is available to customers of all ages and nationalities.

"We applaud the government's ambition to vaccinate 50 per cent of the community by the end of March and we would like to do our part to support these efforts," says Rifad Mahasneh, UAE general manager of Uber.

"Since the onset of the pandemic, we’ve been looking at how we can support our communities, prioritise their health and safety, and ultimately keep cities moving at a time when mobility has been severely impacted. The vaccination drive is part of the effort to leverage our technology to positively impact communities and support the government’s successful efforts in protecting the population against the virus."

Discounts on the Uber app can be availed when travelling to 43 centres in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah, including DHA centres in Dubai, the Seha Vaccination Centre and other select centres in Abu Dhabi, and Mohap-authorised centres in Sharjah.

  • Tap the menu in the top left of the Uber app and select ‘Wallet’.
  • Select ‘Add Promo Code’ at the bottom.
  • Add the promo code SI2021UAE and get 25 per cent off two Uber rides to and from vaccination centres – up to Dh20 each way
