Want Free Tickets to Bucks’ Game 4? Get Vaccinated at the Fiserv Forum.

Bucks, Milwaukee Health Department team up to raffle off two free tickets to people who get vaccinated against COVID-19 before Game 4 on Wednesday.

Want to be in the Fiserv Forum when the Milwaukee Bucks (hopefully) tie up the NBA Finals this Wednesday, but don’t want to shell out $580 or more for a seat? 

If you’re unvaccinated against COVID-19, you can get a jab outside the Fiserv Forum before Game 4 Wednesday to be entered in a drawing to win two free tickets to the game courtesy of a partnership between the Bucks and the Milwaukee Health Department.

Health workers will be on-site to administer the one-dose Johnson & Johnson and two-dose Pfizer vaccine from 6 p.m. to 7:45 p.m. Wednesday. The drawing will take place at 7:45 p.m., just in time for the 8 p.m. tip-off.

The Bucks and Milwaukee health officials also joined forces last month for a COVID-19 vaccine clinic and ticket raffle for Game 6 of the Bucks’ series against the Brooklyn Nets, and held a clinic before Game 3 of that series.

Milwaukee Health Commissioner Kirsten Johnson, in a statement to local media outlets, said more than 130 people have received a shot at the Bucks clinics.

The efforts come as fewer and fewer people are getting vaccinated against COVID-19 and as the highly contagious Delta variant spreads rapidly throughout the country. Just 49% of Milwaukee County residents have received their first dose of vaccine, according to Wisconsin Department of Health Services data, compared to a statewide rate of 50.8%. 

Wisconsin’s vaccination rate further lags the national number of 55.5% of the population having received a first dose.
