You Can Now Get Free Uber Rides To Vaccination Centers In Lebanon

soyforastera | Toronto Star/AP

As of this week, adding to the fuel shortage, the price of 20 liters of gasoline has exceeded 75,000 Lebanese Pounds, which is the equivalent of more than 10% of the current minimum wage.

Lebanon’s worsening transportation crisis is now further exacerbated by the decision to reportedly lift fuel subsidies completely as well as by the increasing fights over gasoline at the stations.

The current rise of the COVID-19 cases, particularly with the novel variants, signals a new wave that can lead to the collapse of Lebanon’s health system in general and hospitals in specific.

Until now, the vaccination rate in Lebanon is only 13.5%, and it is considerably low given the state of Lebanon’s health system. Accelerating the vaccination process can lessen the possibility of such a looming catastrophic scenario.

Here’s where Uber decided to step in and help out both the people and with the national fight against the pandemic.

Eager to ensure that as many people as possible receive the vaccine amidst the multitude of crises in Lebanon, Uber, in partnership with Mastercard, is now offering two free rides, up to 40,000 LBP each, to and from one of the listed vaccination centers.

To access free rides, vouchers have been made available by SMS or email. Also, one can book free rides for other people by following the instructions provided by Uber.

This vaccination campaign ends on August 31st, and people are urged to take advantage of this facilitating offer to get vaccinated for their sake and that of their loved ones.
