Six Flags Great America is partnering with the state of Illinois to help more communities get vaccinated against the coronavirus.
The theme park is giving away 50,000 one-day tickets (valued at $4 million) to newly-vaccinated Illinois residents, in support of COVID-19 vaccination education programs in areas that have been heavily impacted by the pandemic.
Tickets will be distributed to newly-vaccinated state residents through local health department initiatives and community organization vaccine education campaigns. Six Flags Great America will also be hosting mobile vaccination teams at the theme park during the first weekend of June.
In addition, Six Flags is committing $5 million in investments and ticket value to support programs dedicated to equality and socioeconomic advancement of people of color.
“Six Flags is honored to partner with state leaders to encourage Illinois residents to get vaccinated, especially in underserved communities,” Mike Spanos, Six Flags president and CEO said in a statement.
