Norfolk, Virginia — The fight against COVID-19 continues next week as the Norfolk Tides join FEMA, Virginia Department of Emergency Management, the Virginia Department of Health, and the City of Norfolk to provide an additional opportunity for residents to receive their COVID-19 vaccine. Fans attending the May 18th opening day game at Harbor Park will have the opportunity to be vaccinated with the single -shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
“We are looking forward to welcoming fans back to Harbor Park and are proud to be working with FEMA, along with the Virginia Department of Health, to offer the Johnson and Johnson COVID-19 vaccine to fans attending our opening night game on Tuesday, May 18.” said Tides General Manager Joe Gregory. “We will be offering fans who elect to receive their vaccine while attending the opening night game, a ticket voucher good for any 2021 Tides September home game.”
Vaccinations will take place from 5:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. Fans wanting to receive the vaccine are encouraged to enter at the Hits at the Park entrance near the First Base gate.
