Want to get into the San Mateo County Fair for free? Get vaccinated at the fairgrounds.
On Saturday, June 5, the first day of the weeklong fair, the Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines will be available for free just outside the fair’s main entrance at Gate 5 to everyone ages 12 and older, the fair has announced. Administered by San Mateo County Health officials, vaccinations will be offered from noon to 8 p.m. every day of the fair.
Every individual who gets vaccinated will receive fair admission for themselves and anyone under age 11 in the same household, along with a $20 food voucher and four free carnival ride tickets. Each ticket is for a one-time ride use.
Admission to the fair for $15 for adults, $10 for seniors and youth, and free for kids under age 6 (see pricing in graphic below).
“We are excited to welcome the community back to the fairgrounds to enjoy all the attractions, activities, food, traditions we missed last year,” said Justin Aquino, fair operations manager. “By offering the opportunity to get vaccines at the fair, we want to encourage the entire community to get vaccinated so we can all safely enjoy the fair for years to come.”
