Vice President Kamala Harris recently paid a visit to a YMCA in Greenville, S.C., at a Walgreens pop-up COVID-19 vaccine clinic.
“I dropped by a YMCA in Greenville, South Carolina where the community is coming together to get people vaccinated. The vaccines are safe, free and effective. We need every American to do their part — and get vaccinated,” Harris said in a tweet.

Commenting on the vice president’s visit, the National Association Of Chain Drug Stores said in a tweet: “Great to see Kamala Harris encouraging South Carolina residents to get vaccinated at a Walgreens pop-up vaccine clinic with the YMCA in Greenville, S.C.”
As Walgreens works to increase COVID-19 vaccine access, the company recently hit the road with its mobile vaccination clinic. The bus, which is equipped to vaccinate up to six patients at once is on a coast-to-coast multicity tour that kicked off with a stop in Washington, D.C., on May 15.
The move follows more than 800 off-site clinics in medically underserved areas, as well as the May 3 introduction of mobile clinics in certain cities, beginning with a mobile trailer making stops throughout Chicago.
