Come for the vaccine, stay for the show!
Yes, you read that right – San Francisco nonprofit Code Tenderloin, which works to remove barriers for people seeking long-term employment, has raised the bar in terms of vaccine incentives. This Friday, July 30, they will host a Vaccine Rap Day where people can get vaccinated while watching singers and rappers perform original songs. Anyone over 21 who gets vaccinated at the event will receive 1/8th of cannabis, as long as they show ID.
In addition to the vaccine incentive, there’s an incentive for performing as well. All singers and rappers who create and perform a song about getting vaccinated will receive a $200 Visa gift card. Submissions are now closed as of yesterday, but there are sure to be some memorable performances. Come for the vaccine, stay for the show!
