Snuffy’s Bar to host COVID-19 vaccine clinic Wednesday

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) — Snuffy’s Bar will be a walk-in COVID-19 vaccine clinic starting at 3 p.m. Wednesday with free pizza and coupons for anyone who gets vaccinated.

Ambrea Marcou owns the southside La Crosse bar, and is urging anybody who has not gotten their shots yet to stop by. No appointment is needed, and the process will be fast and overseen by the La Crosse County Health Department.

“If you don’t like the idea of going to the hospital or pharmacy to get your shot, we’ve got a solution for you,” Marcou said. “Bring a friend, enjoy some free pizza, and help us get back to normal.”

The clinic will run from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. and is free and open to anyone who has not received a COVID-19 vaccination. A choice of either the single-dose Johnson & Johnson or the two-dose Pfizer vaccine will be available.

Marcou said the best way to get her business back to 100%, while protecting her employees and customers, is to get more shots into arms. She’s hoping service industry workers who may not have had the opportunity to get a shot yet will stop by.

“We’ll have coupons for a free adult beverage available to any service industry workers who get the vaccine that can be redeemed anytime,” Marcou said. “I know how hard my employees and everyone in the bar and restaurant trade works, so this will be a small token of appreciation.”

Snuffy’s is located at 1903 West Ave S., La Crosse.
