Mercedes-Benz Stadium previously served as a vaccination hub in collaboration with the Fulton County Board of Health from January to June. Nearly 300,000 doses of the coronavirus vaccine were distributed to people during that the time.
It is unclear how many fans were vaccinated at West's Thursday night listening party, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
West revealed earlier this year that he contracted the coronavirus in February 2020.
"Chills, shaking in the bed, taking hot showers, looking at videos telling me what I'm supposed to do to get over it," West said of his symptoms at the time.
Despite his experience with the virus, West expressed hesitancy about getting vaccinated. In a July 2020 interview, the rapper compared the vaccine to “the mark of the beast."
“So when they say the way we’re going to fix Covid is with a vaccine, I’m extremely cautious," he said, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
