Biden government partners with ride-hailing platform to provide free transportation for vaccinations to spell out 70% vaccination rate for adults

The US President Joe Biden has announced the goal of reaching at least 70% of adults nationwide to receive at least one dose of Wuhan pneumonia vaccine before Independence Day on July 4. The White House said on the 11th that Washington will work with a number of large corporations to increase the convenience of vaccination in the hope that this will encourage people to roll up their sleeves and get vaccinated.

The White House issued a statement on the 11th that it will work with two major domestic ride-hailing platforms, Uber and Lyft, to transport people to and from tens of thousands of vaccination centers across the country for free, and this preferential service will continue to be offered from May 24 until July 4. Biden said the move is to ensure that transportation problems no longer become a hindrance to vaccination.

In addition, the famous American fast food brand McDonald’s also announced that from July, the meal coffee cups and take-away box stickers will be printed with the vaccination slogan “We Can Do This” and provide the official website of vaccination (Vaccines. gov) so that people can quickly connect.

The report points out that although more than 150 million people in the United States have received at least one dose of vaccine as of Tuesday (11), accounting for about 46 percent of the total population, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said that the average daily number of vaccinations has indeed declined significantly in recent weeks, and the government hopes to use this cooperation with companies to make vaccination more convenient and thus re-stimulate people’s willingness to receive vaccinations.
