TAMPA, Fla. — First Lady Jill Biden and Dr. Anthony Fauci traveled Thursday to Tampa, where they worked with the Tampa Bay Lightning to help get more people vaccinated against COVID-19.
They first visited a drive-thru vaccination site Thursday afternoon in Kissimmee before heading to the Bay area.
Biden and Fauci joined the Bolts later in the afternoon for AdventHealth's Shots On Ice vaccination event at AMALIE Arena. AdventHealth offered Pfizer two-dose and Johnson & Johnson single-dose shots.
The Tampa event ran from 4:30-6:30 p.m.
Floridians were encouraged to register to get inoculated at the event, where they also had the chance to take shots on the net from the ice and get a picture with ThunderBug.
People getting vaccinated also had the opportunity to take part in sweepstakes for prizes, including hockey tickets.
