One thing that is amazing about the Superbowl is the energy the fans bring. This year, it sure was different without them. That's why I have the COVID-19 vaccine and I encourage you to do the same.

As a running-back, I took a lot of hits on the field, but I didn't want to get hit by COVID. So I got vaccinated. Don't take the hit, get vaccinated. That's your best move.

I spent 17 years in the National Football League as a defensive back, but not even I can defend against COVID alone. That's why I got vaccinated.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Is the COVID-19 vaccine safe?
COVID-19 vaccines are safe. Before being authorized for use, the vaccines were evaluated in tens of thousands of diverse participants in clinical trials and all met the Food and Drug Administration’s rigorous scientific standards for safety, effectiveness and manufacturing quality.
The COVID-19 vaccine was developed so quickly. Can I trust it?
COVID-19 vaccines were authorized based on clinical trials. Medical experts and doctors wanted to make sure the vaccines work safely and effectively for as many people as possible, so researchers collaborated with faith leaders, community organizations, and health clinics to reach volunteers from diverse populations. The vaccine clinical trials included adults and children of diverse backgrounds, races, ethnicities, and geographic areas.
Why is it so important to get the COVID-19 vaccine?
Getting yourself vaccinated doesn’t just help protect you – it helps protect others, such as children who are too young to get vaccinated and those who are at increased risk of developing severe COVID-19, like older adults and people with lung or heart disease, diabetes, or conditions that affect their immune systems.
Getting vaccinated is one step toward bringing our communities – our neighborhoods, churches, and schools – back to life. As more people are vaccinated, we can begin to return to the moments we’ve missed with the people we care about.
