Head out to a nightclub in Lawrence this month and you could be getting more than your typical shot of Fireball. That's because starting this weekend, city officials will be setting up vaccine clinics outside popular hotspots in a move to get as many shots in arms as possible.

Meanwhile, you might spy people with coolers walking around Central Massachusetts carrying vaccines instead of refreshing cold beverages. They're both part of the latest strategy to reach holdouts in a state where roughly 30-percent of residents remain unvaccinated.

We speak with Lawrence Mayor Kendrys Vasquez and Dr. John Broach, an emergency physician and organizer of a mobile vaccine clinic for UMass Memorial Healthcare.

This segment aired on August 11, 2021.
