    Free passes to the Reid Park Zoo will be available at a COVID-19 vaccine clinic on June 5, in partnership with the Pima County Health Department and the City of Tucson.

    ZooThe mobile clinic will be open 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Zoo, 3400 E. Zoo Court. The first 100 people who get their first COVID-19 shot will receive a free daytime admission ticket to come back and visit the Zoo.

    The City of Tucson is providing 50 of the free passes, with the Zoo providing the rest.

    The event further continues Pima County's recent incentive programs for the COVID-19 vaccine. The Health Department gave away Arizona Lottery scratcher tickets at two events over the Memorial Day weekend and also offered free admission to the Pima Air & Space Museum to people who went to the FEMA mobile vaccination center.

    "Those events helped boost the vaccinations at those sites, and we will continue to provide extra motivation for people to get their shots and protect our community," said Health Department Director Dr. Theresa Cullen. "We're grateful to our partners for making this happen at a fun summer event for the family."

    No appointments or identification are required for this mobile event. Registration is done on-site. There is no charge for the vaccination.

    All three vaccine types will be available – Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson. Only the Pfizer vaccine has been approved for 12- to 17-year-olds.

    There will be a table in front of the Zoo entrance for people to check in if they are arriving for their vaccination. Zoo staff will escort people to the clinic, which will be set up in the Zoo's Event Garden behind the carousel, and then be escorted back out if they don't have a ticket for that night's Summer Safari Nights event.

    This vaccination clinic is part of Pima County's participation in the National Month of Action, announced by the White House to push the COVID-19 vaccination effort.
