Good news for football fans and for some of our pandemic heroes…
The NFL announced it will be giving 7,500 free Super Bowl tickets to health care workers, who are vaccinated.
This year the big game is being played in Tampa. Although, officials say most of the health care workers will be from Central Florida, all 32 teams will get to pick some vaccinated workers in their communities.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell issued this statement, “We hope in a small way that this initiative will inspire our country and recognize these true American heroes.”
