Whaling Museum to offer coronavirus vaccines

NEW BEDFORD, Mass. — The New Bedford Whaling Museum is offering free admission passes to anyone who gets a coronavirus vaccine at a clinic at the museum on Wednesday.

In addition, the first 25 people who get a shot will also get a gift bag from the museum’s gift shop.

The clinic will be administering the Pfizer vaccine, which has received federal authorization for use in anyone age 12 and older. Preregistration is encouraged but walkins are also welcome to get a shot, which are free, according to the museum.

A followup clinic for the second dose will take place on June 30.

Vaccine check-in and in-person registration will be located at the rear entrance and doses will be administered inside the building.
