FOXBORO, MASS. (WHDH) - New England Patriots fans are able to get vaccinated against the coronavirus while attending training camp this week.
The Kraft Center for Community Health Mobile Vaccination Clinic is administering free Pfizer vaccines to anyone attending practice through Saturday.
Kristy Choinski, of Southbridge, is just one of the fans who has taken advantage of the clinic.
“At first I was opposed because of prior health issues but today I figured it was a good day to support not only the Patriots but everybody else around me,” she said.
Massachusetts General Hospital Community Health Director Priya Sarin Gupta says now is the time for those who are unvaccinated to get vaccinated.
“We’re at this critical point in the pandemic to get those of us that aren’t vaccinated yet vaccinated,” she said.
Fans who receive the vaccine will receive a $25 voucher for concessions at training camp and free admission to the Patriots Hall.
The health staff that administers the vaccine will assist with coordinating the recipient’s second dose.
