Local bars like Beaches WeHo, Trunks Bar, and Hi Tops LA, are joining The Abbey Food & Bar, and The Chapel to get the word out about a COVID-19 mobile vaccine event in front of The Abbey at 692 N Robertson Boulevard. The event is scheduled for Saturday, August 28, 2021, from 9pm-12am.
“Together we can defeat COVID-19,” reads a flyer posted on social media. “Get your free COVID-19 Vaccine.”
Pfizer will be available for ages 12+. To register to get the free vaccine, visit: www.meetmeatheabbey.com/mobilevaccine.
Beaches WeHo, Trunks Bar, Hi Tops, and The Conservatory joined the Abbey Food & Bar, The Chapel, Harlowe restaurant and Formosa Cafe in requiring proof of a COVID Vaccine, or a COVID negative test result to enter their premises at the beginning of this month.
The Abbey released a statement saying: “To protect our staff, customers, community, and country, we are requiring either proof of vaccination or a negative Covid test within the last 48 hours for entry. Since the pandemic began, our staff has been repeatedly screamed at, spit on, slapped and punched by angry customers for enforcing safety protocols. If you have a problem with our policy, please just go somewhere else, like to the nearest vaccination site. #ɢᴇᴛᴠᴀᴄᴄɪɴᴀᴛᴇᴅ.”
Beaches WeHo, Trunks, and HI Tops and a growing number of WeHo businesses adopted the policy.
Anti-vaxxers targeted The Abbey with protests outside the popular restaurant and bar for four nights. However, the protests did not deterred the bar’s pro-vaccine stance. It is now hosting a COVID-19 mobile vaccine event to further protect its customers and staff.
