As the COVID-19 vaccine starts making its way around the country, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell says the league won’t use its influence to jump ahead in line.
“We are not planning on any of our personnel being vaccinated in advance of the Super Bowl.”
He added that the priority should go to “health care workers, first responders, and those that are in the riskiest state. We don’t fall into those categories.”
The Super Bowl is scheduled for February 7, 2021, in Tampa Bay, Florida.
It is still being decided on how many fans will be allowed to attend the big game.
