The 2021 Iowa Hawkeye Football season kicks off this Saturday at Kinnick Stadium on the newly named Duke Slater Field. Hawkeye football is back and fans are excited. Also, new this year, if you're over 21, you can purchase alcohol at Kinnick Stadium. Something else that will be new, but hopefully not permanent, you'll be able to get the COVID-19 vaccine before Iowa and Indiana kick off this Saturday from Hy-Vee.

In a press release on Thursday, Hy-Vee announced that in partnership with the University of Iowa, it will host a COVID-19 and flu vaccination clinic before the Hawkeyes season opener at Kinnick Stadium Saturday against Indiana.

The walk-up vaccination clinic will be from 9 a.m.-2 p.m., Saturday, September 4 at the Hy-Vee Healthy You Mobile near the West Campus Transportation Center building (northwest corner of Kinnick Stadium across from Gate H).

There is no appointment necessary to receive either vaccine. Hy-Vee Pharmacy team members will be on hand to administer both vaccines. Each COVID-19 vaccine recipient must stay in the observation area for 15 minutes after they receive their vaccine, officials said.

Vaccines Available Saturday

Individuals will have the option to receive Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) vaccine, Moderna vaccine, or Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.

  • Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines are available to individuals 12 years of age and older. The Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine requires two doses that should be administered at least 21 days apart.
  • Moderna vaccines are available to individuals 18 years of age and older. The Moderna vaccine also requires two doses that should be administered at least 28 days apart.
  • Janssen vaccines are available to individuals 18 years of age and older and require a single-dose injection.

Minors must have parental/guardian consent to receive the vaccine. Individuals who receive their first dose at the Hy-Vee clinic can receive their second dose at any Hy-Vee Pharmacy location.
