MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) --- Take the shot and get free game tickets! The Milwaukee Brewers and City of Milwaukee Health Department will be joining forces for a pair of pop-up COVID-19 vaccination clinics at American Family Field on Wednesday, May 26 and Thursday, May 27.
The clinics are prior to the games between the Brewers and San Diego Padres. Fans who are vaccinated at the clinics will receive two free tickets to that day's game.
“We appreciate the work that the Milwaukee Health Department has done throughout the pandemic and support their efforts to distribute the vaccine as widely and quickly as possible,” said Brewers President – Business Operations Rick Schlesinger. “As we head toward games with full capacity at American Family Field, life is appearing more normal every day. However, there is still work to be completed in the battle against the virus.”
The clinics will be hosted from 4:10 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 26, and 9:10 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Thursday. Officials say no appointments are necessary.
Fans interested should drive at the ballpark and park their vehicles. They should then head to the entrance at Helfaer Field and the clinics will be staged at the atrium.
The City Health Department will be distributing both the Johnson and Johnson and the Pfizer vaccine on these dates. Officials say for those electing the Johnson and Johnson vaccine, no second appointment is necessary. Those electing the Pfizer vaccine will be able to return for their second dose on either Thursday, June 17 or Friday, June 18
“The Milwaukee Health Department is committed to making it as easy as possible for anyone who wants the vaccine to get it,” said Health Commissioner Kirsten Johnson. “Because of our strong partnerships with organizations such as the Milwaukee Brewers we can bring the vaccine into the community. We are thankful for the Brewers' generosity and hope to see many Brewers fans take advantage of this opportunity and incentive.”
