Ride-hailing service Uber wants to make sure you have a way to get to a COVID-19 vaccination site.

The pilot program will start in Atlanta and three other cities next week before expanding to other areas.

Starting Friday, Walgreens will start administering vaccines at some stores in 15 states, including Georgia.
