    Soccer Stars William Vanzella and Rachel Campanaro Invite Youth Soccer Players to ‘Get a Shot to Take a Shot’ 

    BALTIMORE, MD – Local soccer stars William Vanzella and Rachel Campanaro and the Maryland Department of Health (MDH) are inviting local youth soccer players to join them for an opportunity to get free COVID-19 vaccines and try their luck shooting a goal against a professional. 

    The event will take place on Wednesday, June 23, at Chapelgate Christian Academy, located at 2600 Marriottsville Road, Marriottsville, MD 21104.

    “Kids 12 and older, and their parents, can come by to get a COVID-19 vaccine and kick the ball around,” said Rachel Campanaro, former USA youth national team member, professional player and owner of Soccer by Rachel. “Kids can also try their luck at scoring a goal against William.”

    “All kids are welcome to take a shot,” said William Vanzella, a professional goalkeeper with the Baltimore Blast, MVP, and World Cup player. “But I can’t guarantee that you’re going to score.”

    Appointments for the vaccination clinic will start at 12:00 pm, and the soccer shootout will begin at 1:30 pm. The event’s vaccine clinic will feature the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, which is authorized for patients ages 12 and older.

    “You never know who might show up to see the action or even jump in as a referee,” said Rachel. “Come out and join us – you don’t want to miss your shot.”

    Those wishing to be vaccinated at the event are asked to register here.
