McDonald's Offers COVID-19 Vaccines, Free Food at Select Southern California Locations
Starting Monday, you'll be able to get a COVID-19 vaccine and some free food at some Southern California McDonald's locations.
McDonald's is teaming up with the California Department of Public Health to offer shots at more than 70 of its restaurants across the state, including nearly 50 pop-up clinics in high-traffic, high-visibility areas across Southern California.
"People who receive a vaccine at McDonald's will also get a coupon for one free menu item as a thank you for doing their part," said McDonald's in a web post. "No appointment or health insurance is required and walk-ups are welcome at all locations."
Teen Who Had Heart Attack After Pfizer Vaccine: 'I'd Rather Have COVID'
An 18-year-old from Springdale, Arkansas, who had a heart attack after receiving his second dose of Pfizer's COVID vaccine said he'd rather get COVID than have a heart attack.
In an interview with The Defender, Isaiah Harris said he received his first dose of Pfizer on April 8 and second dose on April 30. Within 12 hours of the second dose, the teen developed a fever and chills. His father, Justin Harris, didn't think much about it initially because although he got sick after both doses of the Moderna vaccine, his symptoms weren't serious.
That wasn't the case for Isaiah. Within 48 hours of the second dose, Isaiah's heart started hurting "very very bad" and things started going downhill fast. Harris said they grew really concerned when their son started having trouble breathing.
