OMAHA — Guests at Henry Doorly Zoo & Aquarium can get a COVID-19 vaccine shot during two upcoming clinics.
The clinics, set for Wednesday and June 16, will be held in partnership with the Douglas County Health Department and Children’s Hospital & Medical Center. Vaccines are available for those 12 and older.
Those who get vaccinated at the zoo can choose one of a handful of incentives, including a round-trip ticket on the train, tram or Skyfari, one ride on the carousel or one admission to Stingray Beach.
A mobile van will be set up on site, near the main entrance, with staff from Children’s administering the Pfizer vaccines. Second doses will be scheduled at other locations.
Zoo admission is not required to get a vaccine.
Wednesday’s clinic runs from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The June 16 clinic is from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Advance registration is not required, but a parent or guardian must accompany children ages 12 to 18 to give consent.
