Shout out to the NFL for showing the love to our amazing health care workers. As a way to say thank you, the NFL is giving 7500 vaccinated health care workers tickets to the SUPERB OWL (<--the big game) ;)
Thousands of health care workers are getting free tickets to the Super Bowl, courtesy of the NFL. The league's commissioner, Roger Goodell, announced Friday that 7,500 vaccinated healthcare workerswill be invitedto the annual championship game as a thank you for their service during thecoronavirus pandemic.
"These dedicated health care workers continue to put their own lives at risk to serve others, and we owe them our ongoing gratitude," Goodell said in a news release. "This is also an opportunity to promote the importance of vaccination and appropriate health practices, including wearing masks in public settings."
All of the health care workers invited will have received both doses of the coronavirus vaccine, according to the league. Most will be invited to work at health care facilities in Tampa and central Florida, though all 32 NFL clubs will select a handful of health care workers from their own communities for an all-expense-paid trip to Tampa.
