NFL considers filling Super Bowl seats with vaccinated health care workers


As the Covid-19 vaccination began distribution this past Monday, an advisory committee of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommended that top priority go to long-term care facilities and front-line health care workers. It was time to protect our healthcare workers who have taken the brunt of this pandemic. Healthcare workers are physically, mentally and emotionally drained.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has proposed inviting vaccinated health care workers to Super Bowl LV in Tampa.

Goodell said the league is currently discussing the idea of responsibly inviting workers and asking health officials for guidance.

More details on the proposal in Goodell's letter Rob Higgins, the President of the Tampa Super Bowl Host Committee,

Goodell wrote -

“We will also use this as an opportunity to promote the importance of vaccination and appropriate health practices, including wearing masks in public settings,”

Super Bowl LV is scheduled for Sunday, Feb. 7.
