In January 2021, India launched what can possibly be the world’s largest vaccination drive. The Covid-19 pandemic that rampaged the year 2020 has unfortunately kept itself going in the year 2021 as well. To our relief not one but several medical institutes have had breakthroughs in developing coronavirus vaccines but what lies ahead is fair and equal distribution of these vaccines to the masses.

Uber Technologies, Inc., commonly known as UBER has stepped forward in these testing times to be of necessary aids to the citizens of India. In their recent public statement, UBER, has pledged “free rides worth INR 10 Cr to support vaccination of vulnerable citizens”. These free rides are deployed to help citizens travel to and from authorized vaccination centres, located in both government and private hospitals.
Uber India has even expressed their desire to help by updating their Twitter bio to 
“Our destination: Staying #SaferForEachOther
