VACCINATION OPPORTUNITY – LOTS OF GIVEAWAYS!
In conjunction with Free Family Day, Ogden Museum is happy to present a COVID-19 vaccination opportunity in the Library, in collaboration with the Mayor’s Office of Youth and Families and CORE, an organization providing free COVID-19 relief in partnership with local governments and community-based organizations. CORE meets communities where they are, offering essential resources to hard-to-reach locations using a walk-up model that provides easier access to testing and on-site registration.
CORE will be on-site administering FREE vaccinations from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The first 15 people to get vaccinated get a Family Membership (Value: $125)! Plus when you get your vaccine, you will receive 4 FREE admission tickets to Ogden Museum to use at a later date, a 20% off coupon to the Ogden Museum Store and more!
Pfizer and Janssen vaccines will be available to guests who participate. Per the CDC and Department of Health’s guidelines, CORE will also be providing boosters for those who received the Pfizer vaccine at least 6 months ago.
