There are plenty of ways to get your COVID-19 vaccine, but two Cincinnati attractions are making it even easier this month.

The Cincinnati Museum Center and the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center have announced that they will be offering free one-shot Johnson & Johnson vaccines on May 22 and May 29. Folks who come in for the jab can enjoy free same-day admission at both of the establishments. 

The vaccination sessions will joined by local physician Dr. O'dell Owens, who will be available to discuss vaccine-related questions or concerns.

"The path to beating COVID-19 is through vaccination,” says Woodrow Keown, Jr., president and COO of the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center in a release.

“There has been well-earned distrust in the Black and Brown communities around vaccines throughout our nation’s history but we stand by all COVID-19 vaccines and urge every member of our community to protect themselves, protect their families and protect their community by getting vaccinated.”

While walk-ins are welcome, participants may also register in advance by calling 513-873-7124.

“We are grateful for TriHealth’s partnership in ending this deadly pandemic and we share their commitment to vaccinating our entire community against the threat of COVID-19,” says Elizabeth Pierce, president and CEO of Cincinnati Museum Center and CEO of the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center in the same release. “We’re proud to do our part by opening our facilities to TriHealth’s team and our community to make that happen.”

The vaccination sessions will take place from noon to 3 p.m. on Saturday, May 22 at the Freedom Center, and from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, May 9 at the Cincinnati Museum Center.
