The Dodgers will conduct a mobile coronavirus vaccination clinic during the team’s three-game series against Arizona.
The clinic will be in the Left Field Reserve level, starting with Friday night’s series opener. Fans who receive their vaccine will also get a voucher for two tickets to an upcoming game while supplies last.
Dodger Stadium has been part of the fight against the coronavirus from the start of the pandemic, first serving as a mass testing site before transitioning the parking area to a wide-scale vaccine site.
A fireworks show will follow Friday's game.
