MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The NBA champion Bucks are teaming up with the Milwaukee Health Department to vaccinate children in the community.
On Saturday, Nov. 13, the health department will administer the COVID-19 vaccine to children ages 5-11 in the atrium of Fiserv Forum.
The clinic will run from 10 a.m.- 2 p.m., and everyone vaccinated at this location will have the opportunity to take a photo with the Larry O'Brien championship trophy.
In addition to the pediatric Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, the clinic will offer first, second and booster doses of Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines for any eligible individual. Flu shots will also be available.
“We appreciate our continued relationship with the Milwaukee Health Department to strongly encourage everyone, including eligible children, to get vaccinated,” said Bucks and Fiserv Forum President Peter Feigin. “We are pleased to utilize Fiserv Forum to make getting a vaccination easy and convenient.”
The Bucks and the Milwaukee Health Department will host a second vaccine clinic on Dec. 4 from 10 a.m.- 2 p.m. to administer second doses of the vaccine.
Those who return to complete their vaccine series at this clinic will be entered to win one of two available family four-packs of tickets for that evening's 7 p.m. game against the Miami Heat. The random drawing will be held following the completion of the vaccine clinic at 2 p.m., and winners will be notified and sent their tickets via email.
