Here is a link to the original story on the team's website.
MUSC Health will offer COVID-19 vaccinations at Joseph P. Riley, Jr. Park during select Charleston RiverDogs games in the upcoming homestand. Fans will have the opportunity to receive a vaccination from 6:00-8:00 p.m. on each of the remaining Fridays in May.
On May 21 and May 28, the vaccines will be administered under a tent just outside of the ballpark on the walkway located along Fishburne Street. Fans are encouraged to make appointments in advance by visiting https://muschealth.org/vaccine-riverdogs. However, walk-ups will be welcome pending availability.
“If we can help encourage people in Charleston to get vaccinated by providing that opportunity at our ballpark, then we are in full support,” said RiverDogs President and General Manager Dave Echols. “Restrictions are beginning to loosen for those who have received the vaccine and we continue to work towards the gameday experience at The Joe returning to normal one step at a time.”
MUSC Health and the RiverDogs are planning to offer more vaccinations at The Joe in future months with dates to be determined. For more information about the vaccine, fans are encouraged to visit https://muschealth.org/get-vaccine.
“We are pleased to partner with the RiverDogs to offer vaccinations at their games!’ said Danielle Bowen Scheurer, M.D., MSCR, MUSC Health Chief Quality Officer. “Our goal is to make the vaccination process as accessible as possible to every South Carolinian.”
