TAMPA — Lightning fans attending Games 3 or 4 of the first-round playoff series at Amalie Arena will have the opportunity to get vaccinated at the game.

The Lightning is holding an on-site vaccination event — provided by Advent Health — at each game, offering free coronavirus vaccinations to anyone with a ticket for the games inside Amalie Arena, or the watch parties at Thunder Alley, the Pepsi Porch or the Cigar City tap room.

The team sent emails Wednesday to all ticketed fans for Games 3 and 4 informing them they can receive vaccinations at the Amalie Arena plaza.

Vaccinations will be available two hours prior to puck drop and at the end of the first intermission.

Fans are encouraged to register in advance using a link in the email they received. Ticketed walkups will be welcomed while supplies last, but they could experience a longer wait time.
