Before the Super Bowl LV matchup between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Kansas City Chiefs at Raymond James Stadium, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell offered each of the league's stadiums as COVID-19 vaccination sites in a letter sent to President Joe Biden.
Teams answered Goodell's call to service, people showed up, and the NFL announced on Wednesday that over two million vaccines have been administered at league sites throughout the United States.
The NFL and MLB both hit one-million-shots milestones for vaccinations last month.
"This building and this parking lot has become a place where literally people are crying as they get that second shot," Cardinals owner Michael Bidwill said of the temporary site set up at State Farm Stadium. "It's an amazing team effort. We're a very small part of it."
Also last month, the NFL announced that a special "Inner Circle" portion of the Draft Theatre at the NFL Draft held in Cleveland, Ohio, that runs April 29-May 1 will be opened only to spectators who are fully vaccinated against the coronavirus. On Tuesday, the Buffalo Bills, along with the NHL's Buffalo Sabres, became the first NFL team to declare proof of COVID-19 vaccination will be required to attend future games.
