Can I book a ride through Careem to get vaccinated?
You can book a Careem to a COVID-19 government authorised vaccination center as long as you do not have symptoms and have not been in contact with any COVID-positive person in the past 14 days. You will benefit from Careem’s rigorous safety policies, and avoid congestion at the parking lot of a vaccination center. We have mapped government authorised vaccination centres for you on our App.
