Anyone who gets vaccinated at the site will receive a voucher for a free ticket to a Buffalo Bisons game. The site will administer the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine. The Toronto Blue Jays will host a vaccine raffle for prizes, including four tickets to the Blue Jays-Yankees game in Buffalo, three autographed baseballs from star players and an autographed jersey from a star player.
