Flu Vaccinations On-Demand

May 20, 2015 / South Africa

Catching the flu is easy. Preventing it should be too.

We have partnered with Discovery Health, to bring you flu vaccinations at the tap of a button!

How it works:

  1. From 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM this Friday, 22 May, you will be able to request a flu vaccination to your doorstep
  2. Starting at 10:00 AM, open your Uber application
  3. Toggle over to the red cross icon
  4. Set your pickup location, and request a ride as you normally would
  5. Within minutes, a Discovery-Accredited nurse will arrive to your location, ready to administer flu vaccinations for up to five individuals (for a flat rate of only R100!)
New to Uber? Sign up here and enter the promotional code UberHEALTHSA for a free first ride up to R150!

That’s not all!

  • All Discovery Vitality members will earn 1,000 Vitality points following their flu vaccination
  • All DiscoveryCard holders, who add their DiscoveryCard to their Uber account, will have the R100 home visit fee refunded


  • You must be 18 years or older to request
  • Nurses can administer up to 5 individual vaccinations at one visit, for a flat rate of R100
Demand will be massive. Should you be unable to request your flu shot on-demand, we encourage you to visit an accredited facility in the Vitality network to get your flu vaccination as soon as possible

Be sure to check out existing Uber benefits, exclusive to Discovery members!

  • With DiscoveryCard, you can get up to 20% cash back on Uber trips, paid into your DiscoveryCard
