Kind Clinic partners with Rain on 4th for pop-up monkeypox vaccine clinic

A line wrapped around Rain on 4th in Downtown Austin on Sunday. 

The club partnered with Kind Clinic to host a pop-up monkeypox vaccine clinic from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. 

Around 100 vaccine doses were available to distribute.

"It’s really important to make sure that we're getting vaccines into folks when they're available, and right now, unfortunately, we only have a clinic during the business week," said Steven Tamayo, director of community health for the Kind Clinic. "So [we] wanted to make sure that we were also offering opportunities for people to get vaccinations in non-traditional settings and non-traditional hours." 

Tamayo said they may be holding other pop-up events in the future. Kind Clinic will also host daily vaccine clinics from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at their Koenig location this Monday through Wednesday.

APH created an online survey for those wanting to see if they are eligible for a vaccine under CDC criteria.
