Event industry pushing to open venues as vaccination sites

Posted at 7:49 AM, Jan 27, 2021

The live event industry is stepping in to help with vaccination efforts.

A group of organizations like Live Nation, Broadway League and the International Association of Venue Managers wrote a letter to the president offering up venues as vaccination sites.

They say vaccines give them the best chance to allow people to gather again.

Since their venues are currently sitting empty and located near public transportation in most communities they could be a good option for states.

The groups also say some of the venues have empty refrigeration systems and are also designed for lines and crowd control.
