“Making vaccines accessible and increasing vaccination rates are critical to safely reopening our community, which is why we are proud to partner with MLB and the Maryland Department of Health to offer safe and effective vaccines to fans at Oriole Park,” said JENNIFER GRONDAHL, Senior Vice President, Community Development & Communications. “Over the past year, Oriole Park has served the community as a voting center, a food distribution site, and a COVID-19 testing site, and now, anyone who wants a vaccine can get one when they visit Camden Yards during the upcoming homestand.”
