Nationals offer COVID vaccine promotion at ballpark originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington
The Nationals have partnered with the District of Columbia to offer coronavirus vaccines at their stadium in Navy Yard on Friday and Sunday, Mayor Muriel Bowser announced. The first 200 people to get the shot each day will receive a complimentary prize pack as well.
Doors will be open at the first base gate from 4 to 8 p.m. on Friday and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday. Health officials will administer the one-shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine with no appointments necessary. The promotion is available to all DMV residents, including those outside D.C.
The Nationals will be playing both days, hosting the Baltimore Orioles for a weekend series. Fans attending the games that get the vaccine will still be able to get a prize pack.
