“Six Flags America is proud to support vaccination efforts in Prince George’s County,” said Park President Richard Pretlow. “After serving as a mass vaccination site this spring — resulting in nearly 340,000 vaccines delivered — we are hopeful that this ticket donation will help reach underrepresented communities. We are excited to offer a day of thrills at Six Flags to help encourage residents to get vaccinated.”

Prince George’s County residents who receive the vaccine at the Prince George’s Sports & Learning Complex until Sept. 17, 2021 (or while supplies last) will receive two free tickets to Six Flags America. Tickets can be used on any public operating day through Sept. 19, 2021.

“We are ‘Prince George’s Proud’ to partner with Six Flags America to promote vaccination efforts throughout the county,” said Prince George’s County Executive Angela Alsobrooks. “While we have made significant strides in our efforts to vaccinate all of our eligible residents, we recognize that we must also continue to work to reach our most vulnerable populations. We hope that offering families a much-needed day of fun and excitement at Six Flags will encourage more of our residents to get vaccinated and be ‘Proud to be Protected’ against COVID-19.”
