On Sunday, January 16, 2022, five St. Petersburg museums are coming together to boost the health and safety of our community during our first ever Museums for Immunity event. In partnership with the Florida Department of Health in Pinellas County, the Center for Health Equity, and the City of St. Petersburg’s Healthy St. Pete initiative, these museums are bringing FREE COVID-19 vaccines to the public at each site.

Participating organizations are offering exciting incentives such as complimentary museum passes and other goodies to encourage the public to stay healthy and enjoy St. Petersburg’s diverse cultural and social amenities. Additionally the Florida Department of Health is providing $15 food vouchers (while supplies last).
