Two of Colorado’s largest marijuana brands are partnering to offer all weekend COVID-19 vaccination clinics in pharmacies in the Denver area.

Wana Brands’ Green Solution pharmacy chain and edibles will operate four vaccination clinics in Green Solution stores in Aurora, Edgewater and Northglenn in partnership with the State Department of Public Health and Environment. The first clinic will take place on Saturday, August 7th in Edgewater and the closing event on Monday, August 9th, in Northglenn. In between there are two clinics in the Green Solution Stores in Aurora.

The marijuana brands had teamed up all summer to promote a new line of fast-acting edibles from Wana, but decided to add vaccinations to their range given the spread of the COVID-19 Delta variant in Colorado. According to CDPHE data, the variant has been confirmed in 48 Colorado counties and accounts for the majority of new COVID cases.

“With the resurgence of the Delta variant, providing access to the COVID-19 vaccine is more important than ever,” said Nancy Whiteman, CEO of Wana, in a statement accompanying the vaccination program announcement. “We are using the launch of Wana Quick as a call to action to support important causes in the communities we serve, and we cannot think of a more important topic than achieving herd immunity to the coronavirus.”

According to the CDPHE, such clinics are central components of a government initiative that supports companies in promoting vaccinations.

“We are grateful for your help in increasing vaccination rates in Colorado. We also want to remind everyone that the vaccine is free, no ID is required, paid time off is available to receive the vaccine and recover from side effects, ”adds the CDPHE.

Unfortunately, visitors to Green Solution’s vaccination events will not get free weed for vaccination, but the pharmacies will be running various product promotions and Wana will be giving away swagbags of equipment.
