At other concerts, you have to either produce a vaccination certificate or a negative RT-PCR test for entry but Kanye West will get you vaccinated against COVID-19 at the venue. Yes. You read it right.
Chicago's Soldier Field, the host of American Rapper-singer Kanye West's next listening concert of the upcoming album ‘Donda’, is set to provide vaccines to those who want to get inoculated against COVID, IBT reported quoting a spokesperson for the stadium.
The report suggests that there will be 1500-2000 COVID vaccine doses available at the venue and whosoever wants to get their vaccination can get it done.
According to IBT, Pfizer-BioNTech and Johnson & Johnson vaccines will be offered at West's party. Both the drugs are approved by Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of the US. Officials from the Chicago Department of Health will be present at the venue to coordinate the time and date for the second dose of those who will get the Pfizer vaccine.
"We have worked with Soldier Field on COVID-19 safety protocols, as we have other venues including Wrigley and Guaranteed Rate Fields, and feel this event can be safely held with the proper mitigation efforts in place," Michele Lemons, a spokesperson for the Chicago Park District, told Chicago Tribune.
The Soldier Field has said that it will ensure that all the COVUD related protocols are efficiently followed during the show.
To ensure proper social distancing, the stadium will only allow 38,000 despite the fact that it can accommodate over 63,000 people.
However, this is not the first time Kanye is offering COVID-19 vaccines at an event. Earlier this month as well, vaccines were offered to people who wanted to at the listening party at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.
Donda is a homage to 22-time Grammy award winner's mother Donda West, who succumbed to complications post plastic surgery in 2007 at 58.
