Seattle Drivers can use Paid Sick Time to get COVID Vaccine


Did you know that Uber and Lyft drivers can use Paid Sick and Safe Time to get the COVID Vaccine?

By law, drivers who have given at least 1 ride in Seattle in the last 90 days can use their paid sick days to:

  • Take a day off work to get the COVID vaccine; and
  • Help family members get the vaccine.
