“These dedicated health care workers continue to compromise their own lives to serve others and we continue to be grateful to them,” Goodell said in a written statement. “We hope, in a small way, that this initiative will inspire our country and recognize these true American heroes. It is also an opportunity to promote the importance of vaccinations and proper health practices, including the wearing of masks in public facilities. “
The majority of health care workers who have been vaccinated with both doses of the vaccine will be from hospitals and health systems in Tampa and central Florida. They each receive free Super Bowl tickets and game experiences direct from the NFL. All 32 NFL clubs will select vaccinated health care workers from their own communities to compete in the Super Bowl in Tampa Bay on Sunday, February 7th.
“We applaud the NFL for honoring health care professionals and promoting vaccine adoption around Super Bowl LV. We are excited to support your planning efforts to create a safe and fun event for all attendees and look forward to a successful Super Bowl in Tampa Bay, ”said John Couris, President and CEO of Tampa General Hospital.
