“We are thrilled to team up with our friends at McLaren Health Care and Meijer to host next week’s vaccination pop-up at the Fox Theatre,” said Chris Granger, Group President, Sports & Entertainment, Ilitch Holdings, Inc. “There’s light at the end of the tunnel, but for us to completely emerge from this pandemic, there is still a need for more people to be vaccinated. We encourage our fans to head downtown to receive their vaccines, and to walk across the street to join us for a great day of Tigers baseball at Comerica Park.”

Individuals 18 and older are eligible to receive either the Pfizer vaccine or the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
