The Padres and the County of San Diego will hold two free walk-up vaccine clinics at Petco Park, with the first one scheduled for Saturday and the second on June 26. A free pair of Padres tickets will be offered to each person getting a shot, along with a Padres Hero T-shirt, while supplies last.

Saturday's "Vax at the Park" will be open from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The June 26 clinic will be from 1:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Both will be held at Gallagher Square, the area beyond the outfield previously known as Park at the Park.

Both the Johnson & Johnson one-dose vaccine and the Pfizer vaccine will be available. The latter is approved for youth ages 12 to 18. Anyone who already received a first dose of Pfizer and has reached the three-week wait time for a second dose also is eligible to get a shot.

Everyone vaccinated will be able to enter a drawing for a free pair of tickets to a future game.

The clinic entrance will be at the 10th & K gate to Petco Park. Free parking validation for those getting vaccinated will be offered for the Padres Parkade on 10th & J.
