Are you a frequent user of private-hire rides? Do you find yourself preferring the safe comfort of a personal ride compared to the crowded MRT?
Well, no matter whether you answer yes or no to the above questions, you might want to make your trip to the vaccination centre in a comfortable car of your own (if you haven’t got vaccinated yet).
Because it’s free.
Gojek Offering Free Rides To & From Your COVID-19 Vaccination Centre
On 25 May 2021, private-hire service Gojek unleashed the greatest news you’ll hear in 2021: free rides.
From 27 May 2021, individuals who are taking Gojek rides to and from their COVID-19 vaccination centre can get them for free.
Of course, if you’re merely going to the nearest polyclinic for your jab, don’t bother ordering a ride because it’s not included in this freebie.
According to their blog, the destinations only include MOH’s vaccination centres, which can be found here.
How To Utilise
For those who’re worried about it being limited to the first 20 people per day, don’t worry.
According to Gojek, the vouchers are already available in your Gojek account.
To utilise, simply look for it within your app under the <Promos> section.
Take note that the vouchers are capped at S$15, so if you’re intending to use this chance to travel further to meet your boyfriend, you might have to pay the excess yourself.
Terms And Conditions Apply:
Each customer is capped at 2 rides each and the rides must be taken between 27 May 2021 and 31 Aug 2021. So if your vaccination falls after that, too bad.
As mentioned, the pickup and dropoff address must be one of MOH’s vaccination centres, which can be found here.
Do take note that the voucher does not cover additional tolls and any unused value will not be refunded.
COVID-19 Vaccinations Will Be Open for People Under 45 at End of This Month
For those who’ve missed it, the COVID-19 vaccination jabs will be extended to individuals below 45 years old by the end of May 2021.
It’s not everybody, however, and the rollout will be made progressively based on smaller age bands.
Think 41 to 45, 36 to 40, etc.
This is due to the limited number of COVID-19 vaccines available here.
The vaccination effort is scheduled to be complete by the end of the year, subject to the timely delivery of vaccine supplies.
For those who can already register for the vaccine, you can do so here.
