The NFL is giving 7,500 free Super Bowl tickets to vaccinated health care workers. The league made the announcement on Friday. This year’s Super Bowl is in Tampa so officials say most of the health care workers will be from Central Florida.

However, all 32 teams will get to pick some vaccinated workers from their community to go as well. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said, “We hope in a small way that this initiative will inspire our country and recognize these true American heroes.” An additional 14,500 fans will also be allowed in the stadium, but there are no details yet on those tickets.
