Yes, the card says "Turn Runner to visit Club Vortex and roll D6 for
each visiting Runner.

Club Vortex says the token may be used at any time.

A similar Q&A is posted in FASA's SRTCG FAQ:

If I pump Tin Man (normally 5/5) to 8/8 and he takes 6 damage, what
Tin Man's stats will return to normal during the End phase of the
turn. This would give him 6 damage against a Body of 5, and so Tin Man
would be trashed.

Again from FASA's FAQ:

Does Fatigue apply to damage a Runner has just received from a card
that "attacks first"?

So in other words, now that the running team has taken damage from the
drone attacking first, and fatigue has taken affect, do they still do
enough damage to kill the drone? Remember anyone who doesn't have the
Stamina ability is getting their Attack Value reduced by the amount of
damage they've sustained.
