Starting today through Saturday, May 15, the City of Long Beach will begin offering two general admission tickets to the Aquarium of the Pacific to anyone receiving their first COVID-19 vaccination.
While we have made tremendous strides in vaccinating 60% of eligible Long Beach residents and 96% of our seniors, we know that vaccine hesitancy for some is real. The City hopes this incentive encourages more of our neighbors to come out and get vaccinated.
Through May 15, people who receive their first vaccine at a city-run vaccination site will be offered two tickets to the Aquarium of the Pacific. City-run vaccination efforts where tickets will be provided include:
- Long Beach Convention Center
- Mobile Community Clinics at Admiral Kidd, MacArthur and Houghton Parks
- Mobile Vaccination Vehicles for homebound individuals and people in hard-hit neighborhoods
- Mobile vaccination at local schools
Remember, vaccine eligible folks can receive a vaccination without an appointment from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, for both drive-through and walk-up options at the Long Beach Convention Center. More info is available at longbeach.gov/vaxlb.
