Kamala’s Vaccine Tour

"In partnership with the South Carolina Brewers Guild, the state will reward anyone who gets a COVID-19 shot at select breweries across the state with a free beer or soda." Nearly 20 breweries have signed up.

THE STATE – Vice President Kamala Harris will make her first official return to South Carolina on Monday, visiting Greenville to help jump-start the White House’s national COVID-19 vaccination push that has centered particularly on the South where shots lag.

The tour is part of the administration’s goal of getting vaccines into 70% of U.S. adults by July 4. Now, the percentage is about 64%.

Harris will wrap up her tour next Friday in Atlanta.
