TONY CABRERA: Good morning Brandy. Yeah, today's a big day here at Universal City Walk as they open this pop up vaccine site. It'll be spread out over two weekends, giving plenty of people an opportunity to get their vaccine but also win those prizes that everybody's talking about. And today is a good day to come on out, because it is the last day to qualify for City and County prizes in LA.

Anyone who gets a first dose of the COVID vaccine by today will be entered to win season tickets to the LA Dodgers or LAFC. This is only for those who get the vaccine at an LA County or City run site, or at a St. John's Well Child and Family Center site. Those getting a second dose who are bringing another person with them to be vaccinated will also be entered into the drawing today.

The Dodgers are also getting back into the vaccine game. Starting tomorrow the team will host a small vaccination clinic in the Centerfield Plaza during home games. The first 1,000 fans to be vaccinated at the mobile clinic will get a voucher for two tickets to a future home game. Today is also the last day for the sweepstakes for a pair of season tickets for the 2022 season.

It's open to LA County residents getting their first vaccine or second dosers who are bringing someone to get their first. Saturday is the deadline for Long Beach residents to have a chance to win prizes. And the city says that since they started offering incentives last month, vaccine appointments have doubled.

Back here at Universal City Walk, the pop up vaccine site is open June 10th through the 13th, then again from June 18th through the 24th. Noon to 6:00 PM, appointments and walk ups are available. Now here, the first 100 people to show up for a vaccine at Universal City Walk will get a voucher for a free treat at Voodoo Donuts. So hey, there you go, yet another cool incentive.
