Vice President Kamala Harris will be in Greenville Monday afternoon as part of the White House’s month-long push for a vaccinated America.
The “We Can Do This” tour is one element of the Biden Administration’s “all-of-America” effort to get 70% of U.S. adults vaccinated by July 4, including free beer for those of legal drinking age from Anheuser-Busch if that 70% goal is met.
“This national vaccination tour to key communities across the country will help reach millions of Americans who still need protection against the virus, highlight the ease of getting vaccinated, encourage vaccination, and energize and mobilize grassroots vaccine education and outreach efforts,” White House COVID-19 Response Coordinator Jeff Zients said during a June 3 press briefing. “As the days get brighter and brighter at home, we’re focused on driving progress to help the pandemic — help end the pandemic around the globe. It’s both the right thing to do and an important step in protecting Americans by helping to stamp out the virus.”
The vice president is scheduled to fly out of Andrews Air Force Base at 10:05 a.m. and fly in to Greenville-Spartanburg International airport.
From there, she will make three scheduled stops:
- 12:15 p.m., Phillis Wheatley Community Center — Harris will deliver remarks at a COVID vaccination mobilization event.
- 1:55 p.m., YMCA of Greenville — pop-up COVID-19 vaccination site tour.
- 3:50 p.m., voting rights conversation with community leaders (location undisclosed).
