A local grassroots volunteer network has been helping thousands of people get their COVID-19 vaccine appointments. Kendra’s COVID Coaches originated in Bee Cave when Kendra Wright started helping friends and family get appointments and quickly grew into a larger undertaking. Per a recent story on KUT, Wright stated, “I asked a few friends if they wanted me to help them get vaccinated. And I helped a few, and then a few more.” Now the group has an army of volunteers working for free to help the public get a vaccine appointment.

Recently, the group has been busy organizing various pop-up vaccine clinics around town and having fun with them. South by South Vax, held April 19th, featured live music at The Pershing in East Austin as a drive-up or walk-up clinic that helped over 350 neighbors get the vaccine, with or without an appointment. Next on their list is to partner with local breweries for walk-up clinics, with the goal of making the vaccine accessible to as many people as possible. The first collaborative brewery event will be held at 4th Tap Brewing Co-op this Sunday. From the Facebook event:

KCC is partnering with 4th Tap Brewing Co-Op and Auro Pharmacy for a free vaccine clinic on Sunday, April 25. Come by for a beer and stay for a shot.
**An RSVP to this event page does not guarantee you a vaccine.**
The vaccine is FREE. There is no cost to you. No appointment necessary! This is a first-come, first-serve event. You will be required to wear a mask in order to receive the vaccine.
Must be 18+ years old to receive the Moderna vaccine.
If you are looking to receive your second dose at this event, you must be at 28+ days after your first dose. Please bring your white vaccination card so that our pharmacists can confirm your second dose.
While the shots are free, the beers are not. Please drink responsibly.
Please note, there is free street parking in the area, but do not park behind 4th Tap and obey any towing signs.
