Kroger announces new partnership with Lyft to get Americans vaccinated
Kroger is partnering with Lyft to give discounted rides to and from COVID-19 vaccine appointments in an effort to encourage more Americans to get vaccinated.
When individuals schedule a vaccine appointment through Kroger’s website, they’ll receive a code for $12 per ride, covering travel to and from each scheduled appointment.
Patients can then request their ride to a nearby Kroger Family of Pharmacies or The Little Clinic location using the free Lyft app.
“With only around 50% of the country fully vaccinated, our partnership with Lyft creates greater accessibility to the vaccine and helps remove transportation barriers. With the new Delta variant on the rise, it’s more important than ever that we push forward with our goals to achieve herd immunity and improve vaccine equity,” said Colleen Lindholz, president of Kroger Health.
If you cannot schedule an appointment online or need more flexibility, Kroger also offers walk-in vaccinations.
