Winter is slowly but surely making its way to South Africa and with it comes flu season. With winter fast approaching, Discovery has revealed a partnership with Uber & Dis-Chem to bring the flu vaccine to consumers in the country.

On Friday, 22 April 2016 between 10:00am and 15:00pm, Discovery Vitality members who live in selected areas in Johannesburg, Pretoria, Durban, Cape Town or Port Elizabeth can have a qualified Discovery-accredited Dis-Chem nurse arrive at their location within minutes, ready to administer the flu vaccine for up to five patients per visit.
The vaccine is free of charge according to Discovery; however you will need to pay R100 for the drive to you when you order through the Uber app.
How it Works
– On Friday 22 April at 10:00am, open your Uber app (or download Uber at uber.com/app)
– Slide across to the UberHEALTH view with the cross icon
– Set your pickup location and request a ride as you normally would
Vitality members earn 1 000 Vitality points for having a flu vaccination. If you’re new to Uber, sign up and enter the promo code UBERHEALTHSA to enjoy your first trip free up to R150, before 22 April 2016.
