Vaccine at Thursday IronPigs Game

Getting vaccinated is a GRAND SLAM! The Allentown Health Bureau is coming to Coca-Cola Park on Thursday, May 6 from 5-7 p.m. to administer COVID-19 vaccinations to adults 18 and older just prior to the IronPigs game that evening at 7:05pm.

For those who do receive a vaccination tomorrow, Thursday, May 6, those individuals can show their new vaccination card at the Provident Bank Ticket Office and receive a FREE game ticket to the game to see the IronPigs play the Rochester Red Wings immediately after their shot. 

“We want to do our part to encourage vaccinations so that all of us can return to ‘normal’ as soon as possible and to help keep our entire community healthy,” said Kurt Landes, President and General Manager of the IronPigs. “It’s time to strike out Covid once and for all.  Ballparks have hosted vaccination drives before, but never AT a game and while providing a free game ticket in return.”

“We’re trying to cover all our bases and get the vaccine into as many arms as possible,” said Allentown Health Bureau Director Vicky Kistler.  “We’re happy to partner with the IronPigs to score more victories over the COVID-19 virus.”

The Allentown Health Bureau is distributing only the Moderna vaccine. Guests who receive a Covid-19 vaccination on Thursday, May 6 will be able to receive their second dose on Thursday, June 3 at the Allentown Fairgrounds any time from 8:30-2:30 p.m.
