GURNEE (WEEK) — Illinois is offering up free Six Flags tickets in an effort to get more vaccinations administered across the state.
Gov. JB Pritzker made the announcement Thursday, saying up to 50,000 tickets will be available to Six Flags Great America at Gurnee and Rockford to newly vaccinated Illinois residents.
The value of the donated tickets is $4 million.
To make sure the tickets have broad reach, the state is sending Illinois National Guard mobile vaccination teams to their Gurnee location starting the first weekend in June: Saturday the 5th and Sunday the 6th. If turnout is high, vaccination teams will return to continue offering this lifesaving protection to residents. Six Flags Great America will announce additional details in the coming weeks.
In addition, a significant portion of the tickets will be distributed through local health departments to use in the way that will best work in their community.
