Oakland A’s offering free tickets in exchange for vaccinations at Coliseum


The Oakland A’s will offer COVID-19 vaccinations at the Coliseum in exchange for two game ticket vouchers.

The team announced the program in coordination with local healthcare providers and MLB’s “Vaccinate at the Plate” program will start Monday during game days. The clinic will be located at the Coliseum’s Eastside Club and be available to anyone; no game ticket will be necessary.

Fans will be able to receive the free vaccine without an appointment up to 90 minutes before first pitch and before the fifth inning of the home game. No insurance is required and the clinic will be offering Pfizer and for people 12 or older. People 18 and older can receive the single dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

“The Coliseum has served as a Vaccination Center since February, and we are thrilled to continue to extend this community benefit at our games starting next week with our partners at Kaiser Permanente and Clayworth Pharmacy,” A’s president Dave Kaval said in a statement. “We will host our vaccination clinic at all home games until there is no longer a need in our community. We encourage baseball fans to head to the Coliseum to receive a vaccine and then join us for a great day of A’s baseball.”

The Coliseum parking lot was once home to a mass vaccination site, but that closed down on May 24 due to low demand.
