San Diego County residents will be able to get vaccinated at Petco Park on Saturday and receive a free pair of tickets to a Padres game along with a Padres Hero T-shirt.

Everyone vaccinated can also enter a drawing for a second free pair of tickets to a future game.

The COVID-19 vaccination event will offer the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine and limited quantities of the two-dose Pfizer vaccine, which is authorized for minors 12 and older.

Vaccinations will take place from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Gallagher Square. The entrance is at the 10th & K gate.

As the clinic is taking place, several high schools will simultaneously be holding graduations at Petco Park. All graduates and their guests are invited to be vaccinated and will receive specially designed stickers printed in both Spanish and English, as well as a pair of Padres tickets, a T-shirt and ticket drawing opportunity.

A second Padres vaccination event will be held at Petco on Saturday, June 26, from 1:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.

The two events support Major League Baseball’s “MLB Vaccinate at the Plate” program taking place throughout June to increase COVID vaccination rates across the United States.
