The University of Notre Dame is offering free football tickets to people receiving their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. 

Starting this week, anyone getting their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine will get two complimentary tickets to a select Fighting Irish football game, while supplies last.

Individuals can choose between the 3:30 p.m. Nov. 6 game against Navy or the 6:30 p.m. Nov. 20 game against Georgia Tech.

Notre Dame is partnering with the St. Joseph County Department of Health to offer the free tickets. To participate, you must receive your first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine at the county-run clinic in the main lobby of the County-City building in downtown South Bend. 

The clinic is open and offering vaccines from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8:30 to 11:20 a.m. on Saturdays. Walk-ins are welcome, and you can also schedule a time online.
