Columbus Clippers, ring your bell… and get your vaccine!
The Columbus Clippers and Mount Carmel are teaming up to celebrate the return of baseball to the Arena District with an opportunity for fans to get vaccinated.
From May 11 through May 16, the Clippers and Mount Carmel will offer a COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic at Huntington Park. Fans 18 and over ca nvisit the first-aid center behind home plate from the time the gates open through the end of the third inning to receive the single-dose J&J vaccine.
“We believe that we are one of the first professional sports teams in the country to offer their fans a “shot and a beer” while enjoying a ballgame. This unique opportunity to get your J&J Vaccine while actually enjoying a Clippers game is the ultimate in multi-tasking,” said Clippers President & GM Ken Schnacke. “So come out to Huntington Park, see the Clippers play and get your vaccine shot to help central Ohio become safer for all of our citizens. Leave the game with your vaccination card and hopefully fond memories of a Clippers victory!”
Dr. Mark Herbert, an infectious disease physician and long-time Clippers fan will be singing the National Anthem during the home opener. “Being vaccinated is our best path forward for ending the pandemic and we strongly encourage anyone who hasn’t been vaccinated to do so. We invite them to come for some peanuts, crackerjacks, and great baseball and leave with added protection from COVID-19,” said Dr. Herbert.
The Clippers open their first home stand of the season on May 11 against the Omaha Storm Chasers at 6:15pm. For tickets and more information, please click here.
