John Falcicchio, Washington, D.C.'s deputy mayor for planning and economic development, told The Hill that city officials haven't confirmed any additional dates for the giveaway, which was led by the Washington-area H2 collective, beyond Thursday.

Washington is not alone in offering residents over 21 a COVID-19 shot and a beer amid the ongoing pandemic; New Jersey's Department of Health will buy residents a pint at participating breweries if they show proof that they have received their vaccine.
