Too lazy to get a flu shot this season?
San Francisco-based on-demand livery service Uber will come to you. The company said Thursday it's testing an on-demand flu prevention service in Boston for one day only.
From 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. today, Uber will allow consumers to request a free flu shot or flu prevention information by selecting "UberHEALTH" within the Uber smartphone app. Uber users will receive a flu prevention pack and the option to request a flu shot from a nurse for up to 10 people.
Uber is testing its UberHealth service in Boston, New York City and Washington, D.C. in partnership with Vaccine Finder, a free vaccine search tool developed in part by Boston Children's Hospital.
For every shot given, the company said it would donate $5 to the Red Cross to support vaccination efforts for children including its Measles & Rubella Initiative.
