BREWERS TO HOST TWO POP-UP VACCINATION CLINICS NEXT WEEK; PARTICIPANTS TO RECEIVE FREE GAME TICKETS
MILWAUKEE – The Milwaukee Brewers and City of Milwaukee Health Department are joining forces for a pair of pop-up COVID-19 vaccination clinics at American Family Field next week. The clinics are set for Wednesday and Thursday, May 26 and 27, prior to games between the Brewers and San Diego Padres.
“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 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.”
Fans who are vaccinated at the clinics will receive two free tickets to that day’s game. Here is how it will work:
• The clinics will be hosted from 4:10 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 26, and from 9:10 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 27. No appointments are necessary.
• Fans interested in being vaccinated should arrive at the ballpark and park their vehicle. Parking may be purchased on arrival, or in advance through Brewers.com.
• Participants should proceed from their vehicle to the entrance to Helfaer Field. The clinics will be staged in the atrium of Helfaer Field.
• The City Health Department will be distributing both the Johnson and Johnson and the Pfizer vaccine on these dates. 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 Brewers are out of town on these dates).
• After receiving the vaccination, fans will wait 15 minutes for observation at Helfaer Field before receiving their two complementary tickets. Tickets will only be available for that day’s game.
• Masks are required to be worn throughout the process.
