BUFFALO, N.Y. — The Erie County Department of Health is hosting several "Shot and a Chaser" COVID-19 vaccine clinics this month at local breweries.
At the "Shot and a Chaser" vaccine clinics, anyone 21 years old or older who receives their first dose of the vaccine will get a free beer. The first "Shot and a Chaser" vaccine clinic happened Saturday at Resurgence Brewing in the City of Buffalo.
“This is a way to reach people when they are out and about,” said Jeff Ware of Resurgence Brewing Company. “We are encouraging people to come with a friend or family member, go through the ECDOH vaccine station, and stop over at our Chicago Street location to enjoy a drink, on the house.”
The vaccine clinic goes from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m.
Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz says walk-ins were accepted at the pop-up vaccination site; however, appointments were strongly suggested. To sign up for an appointment at the Resurgence pop-up vaccine clinic, click here.
Saturday's event is a Moderna first-dose clinic. Anyone 18 and older is eligible to receive the vaccine, but the promotion is only valid for those of legal drinking age.
The other "Shot and a Chaser" COVID-19 vaccine clinics are scheduled for May 12 at Flying Bison Brewing Company, May 15 at Steelbound Brewery in Springville, and May 15 at Thin Man/Tappo.
