As India battles a fierce second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic, there is only one way to tackle this crisis and that is mass vaccination. Seeing the current growth of coronavirus patients, Uber India has announced an Rs 18.5 crore initiative to compensate the first batch of 1,50,000 car, auto and moto drivers on the platform for time spent in getting their shots.
Pavan Vaish, Head of Supply & Driver Operations, Uber India South Asia, said, "Mass vaccination is key to tackling India's COVID crisis, and this is the best way to ensure that drivers, riders and the broader community can get protected as soon as possible. We will soon begin communicating this initiative to drivers across all our product lines, and encourage them to take up the offer."
Uber India's main aim is to tell their employees they're not alone in their battle against corona. All drivers showing valid digital vaccination certificates will be eligible for Rs 400 for each of their two shots. Drivers who're able to show they've been vaccinated before April 30 can also claim the funds back.
Uber will soon begin communicating this initiative to drivers across all our product lines and encourage them to take up the offer. The vaccination drive is the latest addition to our covid-19 response in India. Earlier this year, the company pledged Rs 10 Crores worth of free rides to help people get to and from the nearest vaccine centre.
Also, this year, Uber has facilitated around 9,000 free online medical consultations for drivers and their families through DocsApp. Since the early days of the pandemic, the company has been providing financial assistance for up to 14 days to drivers who have been tested covid positive or have been asked to self-isolate by a public health authority.
