COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — People who get vaccinated against COVID-19 at South Carolina breweries this month can receive a free beer.

The state health department says the events are part of an effort to get shots into the arms of young adults.

The “Shot and a Chaser” events are scheduled throughout June at participating breweries across the state. Trained medical professionals will offer the one-shot Johnson and Johnson vaccine and some sites will also offer the two-dose Moderna vaccine.

Fewer than 16,000 people between the ages of 20 and 24 have been vaccinated in the state as of Tuesday. That equals less than 1% of all vaccinated people in South Carolina.
