Portland Diner Adding A New Item To Its Menu: COVID-19 Vaccines
Portland's landmark eatery Becky's Diner will have a new item on the menu next week: COVID-19 vaccines.
MaineHealth will launch a new round of community-targeted vaccination clinics, beginning with one at the iconic diner on June 2 and 3.
MaineHealth is closing mass vaccination sites in favor of new, smaller clinics in specific neighborhoods.
As part of the launch, on-site vaccine recipients will receive a $15 Becky’s Diner gift certificate.
"Our hope is that bringing the vaccine to our business will help it reach a segment of the population that has not received a vaccination for what is likely a wide range of reasons," owner Becky Rand says in a press release.
Vaccines will be available to people 18 and older from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m.
