Texas' largest vaccination effort for restaurant workers is coming to Austin this weekend.

Hospitality workers in Austin already qualify to get a coronavirus vaccine, and it'll be even easier to get one, thanks to a vaccine drive scheduled from 9 to 3 p.m. May 1 and 2 at Circuit of the Americas.

The Great Texas Hospitality Worker Vaccine Drive, which launched on April 20 in Houston, is a collaboration between the Texas Restaurant Association, Texas Food & Wine Alliance and Good Work Austin, service industry organizations that launched during the pandemic.

The Texas Restaurant Association, the Texas Food & Wine Alliance and Good Work Austin have organized a vaccine drive for restaurant and hospitality workers on May 1 and 2 at Circuit of the Americas.
