In a continued effort to offer ease of access to the COVID-19 vaccine, MidMichigan Health has partnered with the Midland County Department of Public Health to provide a vaccine clinic to those attending the Dow Great Lakes Bay Invitational on Saturday, July 17. The clinic will take place from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m., in the MidMichigan Health tent located near the entrance of the tournament welcome tent at Midland Country Club. Those receiving the vaccine will receive a $20 voucher good for two lawn tickets to a 2021 Great Lakes Loons home game. The voucher can be also be upgraded to box seats or used for a future game.

“We are all pleased to see the COVID-19 numbers continue to decrease, but in order to continue to reach herd immunity, we need even more people vaccinated,” said Lydia Watson, M.D., senior vice president and chief medical officer, MidMichigan Health. “By collaborating with the health department, we can meet the residents where they are and make the vaccine available for all those who may have not yet had the opportunity to receive it.”

The Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines will be available at Saturday’s clinic. No appointments are necessary.
