Larry Flynt's Hustler Club
The Vegas Hustler Club is one of 10 clubs situated around the United States, and was founded by Larry Flynt. Flynt died earlier this year, aged 78.
He was well-known in the poker community for his famed seven-card stud game at the Hustler Casino in Gardena, California, that regularly attracted some of the best poker players of the time including John Hennigan, David Benyamine, Barry Greenstein, and Phil Ivey.
The Club has stated on social media that those who are fully vaccinated will receive a free platinum membership, however, the vaccination center will be open for all people age 12 and older.
The Southern Nevada Health District "continues to stress the importance of everyone getting the COVID-19 vaccine".
"Vaccinations are critical to stopping this pandemic."
"Younger adults and children with COVID-19 may have mild or even no symptoms, but some will get severely ill and even require hospitalization.
"They can also spread the virus to those who may be more at risk for complications from the illness. Vaccinations are critical to stopping this pandemic, and the more people who are vaccinated the better they will work"
