SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU) - Beginning this week, anyone receiving their first dose of a COVID vaccine will get free tickets to select Fighting Irish football games while supplies last.

The University of Notre Dame and the St. Joseph County Department of Health are teaming up to make it happen.

You can get two tickets total to either the Nov. 6 game versus Navy or the Nov. 20 game versus Georgia Tech. To get the tickets, you’ll have to get your vaccine at the clinic in the main lobby of the County-City Building in downtown South Bend.

Walk-ins are welcome, and you can also schedule a time online on

“I think the message behind this gift made possible by Notre Dame is if you look at the experience on campus, where 95-percent plus of the campus community is vaccinated, their COVID cases are low,” says Dr. Mark Fox of the St. Joseph County Health Department. “If we could mirror that kind of vaccination rate across the county, all sorts of the challenges that we face throughout the pandemic or concerns related to gatherings, to masks, those things all become a lot simpler.”

Just over 51 percent of St. Joseph County residents are vaccinated.
