Miami-Dade, United Way & Uber Partner To Help People Get To COVID Vaccination Sites
MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava, the United Way of Miami-Dade, and Uber announced a partnership Thursday to provide more than 20,000 rides to help residents with limited transportation options get to vaccination sites.
“As we work to get shots in arms and to expand vaccination among all communities, I’m excited we are launching this new partnership to remove barriers to vaccination in Miami-Dade,” said Mayor Daniella Levine Cava. “Our message to all Miami-Dade residents is that we need you to get the shot to protect yourself, your loved ones, and help our community move forward, and we are working to make it as easy and accessible as possible to get a vaccine.”
Officials said that Uber is integrated into the Miami-Dade pre-registration process, so residents with limited transportation options can sign up for both their vaccine shot and a ride to and from a County-run vaccination site at the same time.
