The incentive applies to people who get at least their first shot, or the Johnson & Johnson vaccine from Tuesday through Wednesday, July 14.

RTS is hosting a series of pop-up vaccine clinics at its Transit Center on Saint Paul Street. The first clinic is Tuesday until 7 p.m., with another on Wednesday until 5 p.m.

The clinic offers both the Johnson and Johnson as well as the Pfizer vaccine.
