In 1977 Eddie Money sang about having “Two Tickets to Paradise” with a hit single that reached as high as number 22 on the Billboard Hot 100.

I don’t know if tickets to see Notre Dame host Navy or Georgia Tech later this fall would qualify as paradise but in an effort to get people vaccinated, Notre Dame and the St. Joseph County Department of Health (SJCDH) are giving county residents two free tickets to either of those home contests if they get their first COVID-19 vaccine shot in the SJCDH.

In a release, Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick stated:

“Notre Dame continues to look for ways to encourage members of our community — including our local fans — to get vaccinated against COVID-19,” said University Vice President and James E. Rohr Director of Athletics Jack Swarbrick. “We hope that the opportunity to secure complimentary tickets to a Notre Dame football game will provide an additional reason for residents of our broader community to become vaccinated.”

If someone hasn’t gotten the vaccine yet I’m not sure college football tickets to rather non-marquee games will do the trick but I certainly appreciate the effort on both Notre Dame and St. Joseph County’s parts.

If interested in participating in this opportunity, individuals must receive their vaccine at the St. Joseph County Department of Health supported clinic in the main lobby of the County-City Building (227 W. Jefferson Blvd., South Bend, IN 46601). Hours are Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m.-3:20 p.m. and Saturdays, 8:30-11:20 a.m. Walk-ins are welcome. Individuals can also schedule a time at www.ourshot.in.gov.
