LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The push to get people vaccinated against COVID-19 continues, and they’re pulling out all the stops, from incentives to convenient locations. Now, they’re turning to attention getters.
There’s one in particular here in Las Vegas that’s gaining national attention. Larry Flynt’s Hustler Club on Dean Martin near Russell hosted a pop-up clinic Friday, offering free dances and complimentary bottles for anyone willing to roll up their sleeve.
It’s definitely a Vegas spin on vaccinations.
The club partnered with the Southern Nevada Health District to offer Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson shots. Those who show up to get vaccinated received a package worth $5,000, which includes a platinum membership card, free dances from a vaccinated entertainer and tickets to see the after dark show at Hustler.
Those at the club said it’s a great and unique way to promote the efficacy of the vaccine and encourage everyone to get their first dose.
“We just figured it would be a great, fun idea, a Vegas spin,” said Ralph James, general manager of Hustler Club. “We tried it out in our Hustler Club in New Orleans, and it was a big success, so, we just figured we would try it in Vegas and get more people in here vaccinated.”
