“With the resurgence of the Delta variant, it’s more important than ever to provide access to the COVID-19 vaccine,” said CEO of Wana Brands. Nancy Whiteman. “The Summer of Quick Tour events support efforts by CDPHE to provide easy and quick access to vaccines, and we hope that this can allow even more Coloradans to get vaccinated as we work together to defeat this virus.”
