In response to a call from the US government, Walgreens is teaming up with Uber and DoorDash to deliver prescriptions of Paxlovid to the homes of people living in underserved communities.
The no-charge delivery option will be offered to patients with a prescription for the oral COVID-19 treatment who live in a socially vulnerable community, based on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Social Vulnerability Index. When filling their prescription through Walgreens' website or app, they'll see an option for free delivery by Uber or DoorDash. The initiative is launching in November.
