Uber to deliver flu shots around Tampa Bay Thursday



Need a flu shot this season? Uber wants to deliver one to you tomorrow as part of its UberHEALTH campaign.

The rideshare company is making house calls Thursday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Users just have to open their apps, choose UberHealth, select a suitable indoor location, and wait for Uber to arrive with a registered nurse from Passport Health.

With the purchase of one $10 wellness pack, that nurse will then administer flu shots for up to 10 people at no additional cost. The nurse will also handle all paperwork and consent forms.

Demand for UberHEALTH is expected to be high, and users are asked to be patient.

Uber will deliver flu shots in more than 35 U.S. cities, including Tampa Bay. Less than 50-percent of adults receive a flu shot, Uber said.
