In an effort to reach those who have not received the COVID-19 vaccine yet, the state has partnered with the Arizona Diamondbacks and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona to hold a free vaccination event at Chase Field on Saturday, June 5 -- and free baseball tickets are up for grabs.

The event will be held from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. at Chase Field in downtown Phoenix. State-operated sites distribute the Pfizer vaccine.

Everyone vaccinated over the age of 12 will have a chance to run the bases, take photos on the field, and will receive a voucher for two tickets to a future weekday Diamondbacks game.

Appointments can be made online or via phone, 844-542-8201. Walk-in appointments will also be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Those who receive their first dose at the event will be able to schedule their second dose for June 26.

The state-run sites are set to close by June 28. The state will then shift its focus to community-based partners, such as pharmacies, doctors' offices, and neighborhood organizations.

Editor's note: This story has been updated to include information that the state-run vaccine sites will close by June 28.
