“We are so grateful to our partners for helping vaccinate so many Arizonans, including thousands of D-backs fans,” D-backs President and CEO Derrick Hall said in a statement.
“We want to play a role in ensuring that anyone who wants a vaccination is able to get one so that we can continue to get back to our normal lives as soon as possible.”
The Moderna vaccine will be offered. An appointment for a second dose will be scheduled when booking your first shot.
