CEO of BrewDog offering bars as COVID-19 vaccination venues: ‘We have waiting areas, huge refrigerators’


#It is the season of giving, even for businesses.

#Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many bars and restaurants in #Scotland and other #European countries have been forced to close down. #While this has been devastating for businesses, one chain is offering to use its closed locations to help with the vaccine rollout.

#James #Watt, co-founder of the brewery and pub chain #BrewDog, tweeted at #Nicola #Sturgeon, #Scotland’s first minister, and #Matt #Hancock, #British secretary of state for health and social care, offering up assistance. #Watt said he would be willing to allow them to use closed #BrewDog locations for the vaccine rollout, citing the locations’ waiting areas and large refrigerators.

The message read, “We would like to offer our closed #BrewDog venues to help with a quick roll-out of the vaccine. #For free. #We have waiting areas, huge refrigerators, separate rooms for vaccinations and an ace team who can help organize. #We want to help.”

#Sturgeon responded to the tweet, “Thank you. I’ll pass this on to our vaccination team.”

A new variant of the coronavirus that is thought to be more easily transmissible was recently discovered in #Britain, prompting the country to implement new, strict lockdown measures.

#According to the #BrewDog website, the company has bars located in #Scotland, #England and #Wales, along with several bars in the #United #States (although no mention has been made of using any of these locations for vaccine rollouts).

#Fox #News previously reported that #Britain became the first nation in the world to approve #AstraZeneca and #Oxford #University’s COVID-19 vaccine, with rollout and distribution set to get underway by early next week. The #British government has reportedly ordered 100 million doses of the vaccine and plans to start administering doses on #Monday.

The U.K. was also the first to approve #Pfizer and #BioNTech’s vaccine, jumping ahead of both the #European #Union and the U.S. medical regulators.
