Kanye West to Distribute Covid Vaccines at ‘Donda’ Event .
Kanye West isn’t requiring folks to be vaccinated or test negative for COVID-19 to enjoy his “Donda” event in Chicago … but the good news … fans can get inoculated on site.
A spokesperson for Soldier Field, the football stadium where Kanye is hosting his next listening party for his upcoming album, tells TMZ … There will be more than 1,500 doses on hand for Kanye fans who want to roll up their sleeves.
We’re told the doses are split between the two-shot Pfizer and one-shot Johnson & Johnson vaccines. For anyone getting their first shot of Pfizer, which just got full FDA approval, we’re told officials from the Chicago Department of Health will be on-site to help set up appointments for the second dose.
Kanye’s not the one pushing the vax … we’re told the folks who run Soldier Field, ASM Global Management, worked with the City of Chicago to make this happen.
It’ll be interesting to see how many folks roll up their sleeves before listening to Kanye’s upcoming album … vaccines were available at Ye’s last listening party in Atlanta, but only a measly 4 out of 40,000 got the shot.
There won’t be quite as many folks allowed into Soldier Field … the home of the NFL’s Chicago bears is operating under reduced capacity … with only 38,000 allowed inside instead of the usual 63,000.
As we reported … Those who show up, vaxxed or not, will see Kanye perform on a stage featuring his childhood home from the South Side of Chicago.
