The pop-up vaccination clinic will be held from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday at the Pantages Theatre, 6233 Hollywood Blvd. People who get vaccinated at that site will have a chance to win a pair of tickets to see the Broadway hit at the theater.

On Thursday, the county announced anyone aged 18 and older who gets their first vaccination at a Los Angeles County or city-run vaccine site on Saturday and Sunday will be entered for a chance to win a pair of season tickets for the Lakers.

"Thanks to the generosity of the Lakers and their deep commitment to getting us all safely to the end of the pandemic, a lucky pair will be able to watch live at the Staples Centers all the home Lakers games for this upcoming season," county Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer said Thursday in announcing the incentive. "So this weekend make time to get your vaccine. Not only will you get a lot of added protection, but you may be that lucky person who gets to watch an amazing basketball team pursue another NBA championship."

After being shuttered for more than 14 months, the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood will reopen to audiences on Aug. 17 with Lin-Manuel Miranda's smash hit about two months earlier than initially planned.

Tickets are on sale now.
