The Seattle Mariners became the first team in the MLB to offer vaccines to fans during games. This comes in partnership with the city of Seattle and the Sounders FC organization, which implemented the same process during its games last week.
The MLB reports that no appointments are needed as the vaccines will be distributed on a walk-up basis throughout three locations at T-Mobile Park. There are two choices offered, the single-dose Johnson & Johnson or the first dose of the Moderna.
The Mariners are the first MLB team that will make vaccines available to fans attending games.
Here's which shots are being offered inside T-Mobile Park, where fans coming can receive them and which medical and governing bodies will administer them:https://t.co/VLs8ixVk78

Seattle Mayor Jenny A. Durkan said in a statement that this is a great step forward in vaccine distribution to the community. "As we begin the final stretch of our vaccination effort, we'll keep bringing the COVID-19 vaccine directly to our eligible communities, and Tuesday's game is no exception. We'll see our Mariners fans at the ballpark this Tuesday for vaccination and a win," said Durkan.
