Come For the Poke, Leave with a Pint – Free Craft Beer Voucher with Vaccination


Santa Cruz County, CA – Community Bridges is hosting a pop-up vaccination event in partnership with Fruition Brewing to encourage those 21 and over who may not have had the time or opportunity to get vaccinated to join us on Friday, June 18 from 3 – 7 p.m. to “take the shot.” 

“Meeting people where they are is incredibly important if we want to reach people who don’t have the time, opportunity, or inclination to get the Covid-19 vaccine,” said Raymon Cancino, Community Bridges’ CEO. “There’s science around the use of incentives to encourage vaccination, so we’re willing to get creative if we believe that will help promote a healthier community for all.” 

Vaccinators will be on hand to deliver the single-shot Johnson & Johnson Covid-19 vaccine for free to all eligible attendees. Only those 21 and over will be eligible to receive the free voucher towards one of Fruition Brewery’s craft beers. 

Fruition Brewing is located at 918 E. Lake Ave., in Watsonville next to Staff of Life. Planning to attend or can’t make it but want to help out? Follow our event on Facebook and help us spread the word!
