  • The UK government has announced a partnership with businesses to encourage uptake of the COVID-19 vaccine. 
  • The scheme includes ride-sharing apps Uber and Bolt, and the food delivery app Deliveroo. 
  • The aim is to get more young people, aged 18-29, vaccinated. 

Several UK ride-sharing and food delivery apps are offering discounts to young people who get their COVID-19 vaccine. 

Food delivery and taxi firms including Uber, Bolt, Deliveroo, and Pizza Pilgrims will offer discounts as a part of the Government drive to have more young people take their COVID-19 vaccinations.

Uber will be sending notifications to all users in August to urge them to get the vaccine and will offer discounted rides and meals on

Uber Eats
for young adults who get the jab. 

Bolt – another popular taxi app – will be offering free ride credit to vaccination centers.

Deliveroo will be offering vouchers to young people who get their vaccine, with Pizza Pilgrims joining on a similar offer. 

A Deliveroo spokesman said: “We want to do our small part to support the NHS during the pandemic, including delivering a million free meals to frontline NHS staff and vaccine centers. This is the next step in helping people get vaccinated and safely back to normal.”

Thom Elliot, Pizza Pilgrims Founder, said: “By making getting your jab as easy as grabbing a pizza, hopefully, we can help our teams and our customers get both their first and second doses as easily and quickly as possible. Watch this space for more details.”

Health and Social Care Secretary Sajid Javid said: “I’m delighted that more than two-thirds of young people in England have already had a first dose of a vaccine, helping to build a wall of defense around our country.

“Thank you to all the businesses who are stepping up to support this important vaccine drive. Once available, please go out and take advantage of the discounts.”

The UK has a high vaccination rate, with 88.4% of eligible people having received one dose, and 71.8% had received two. 

This particular campaign is focusing on the 33% of people aged 18-29 who have not received a first dose of the vaccine. 

This campaign comes as the UK sees a decline in the recent peak in COVID-19 cases, which at its peak saw almost 43,000 cases of COVID-19 be diagnosed in a single day.
