The Government of Canada and Uber Canada have just announced a partnership to help inform Canadians about the safety and effectiveness of the authorized COVID-19 vaccines and the importance of continued adherence to public health measures.
According to the press release, Health Canada and the Public Health Agency of Canada will be working with Uber to reach millions of riders, drivers, delivery people, customers, and restaurant partners.
Information about vaccines will be displayed in English and French across all of Uber’s channels, including Uber and Uber Eats home screens, banners throughout trip and food delivery experiences and through email newsletters.
“By partnering with Uber Canada, we will be able to share important information about COVID-19 vaccines with millions of people in Canada,” said Patty Hajdu, Minister of Health.
“To support the COVID-19 recovery effort, we want to inform Canadians that the best vaccine is the first vaccine made available to them,” said Matthew Price, GM of Uber Canada. “Through our partnership with the Government of Canada, we can do our part to accelerate vaccination efforts by using Uber’s platform to instill confidence with timely and credible information.”
As the vaccine rollout continues and more Canadians become eligible, access to credible information will be important for Canadians to make an informed decision to vaccinate.
