Take the Shot … in Your Arm!
The Dallas Mavericks, in partnership with the city of Dallas, will host COVID-19 vaccination events outside on Victory Plaza at American Airlines Center for Texas residents aged 18 and older, before game three of the playoffs on Friday, May 28 and game four on Sunday, May 30, from 6-10 p.m. CST.
The events will be facilitated by a Texas Military Department Mobile Vaccination Team administering the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine. No appointment is required, and walk-ups are welcome, even for those not attending the games. Vaccine recipients should plan to be observed for 15 minutes after the administration of their vaccine. All participants must complete COVID-19 vaccine screening and consent forms.
“Valuable partners like the Mavs are key to getting all eligible residents vaccinated so Dallas may reach community immunity,” said Rocky Vaz, Director of the Office of Emergency Management. “This is a safe way to help vaccinated Dallasites resume activities we love.”
The Dallas Mavericks plan to increase attendance for postseason play to near American Airlines Center’s full capacity. Masks will continue to be required for all fans inside the arena when not eating or drinking. Fans can purchase single game tickets for home playoff games on Mavs.com.
The American Airlines Center is located at Victory Station on the DART Rail Green and Orange lines and the Trinity Railway Express (TRE).
