CINCINNATI NFL ALUMNI ENCOURAGE COVID-19 VACCINATION
Former Bengals Promote Vaccine Confidence Through Awareness & Education Campaign; Will Host Vaccination Clinic in on October 16
CINCINNATI, OH (October 7, 2021) – A new campaign from NFL Alumni Health, in partnership with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), aims to build COVID-19 vaccination confidence in cities around the country – including Cincinnati. Pro Football Hall of Famer and former Cincinnati Bengals offensive tackle Anthony Muñoz and former Cincinnati Bengals placekicker Jim Breech are among the more than 50 players lending their voices to the education and awareness campaign, which encourages people to get informed, address their vaccine questions with their healthcare providers and make the decision to get vaccinated. The initiative will include public service announcements, a campaign website, social media posts and local events in collaboration with healthcare providers and public health organizations.
To encourage vaccination, the NFL Alumni Cincinnati Chapter will team up with St. Elizabeth Healthcare, the Northern Kentucky Health Department, Covington Independent Public Schools, and the City of Covington to host a mobile vaccination clinic. The event will provide an opportunity for participants to receive free doses of the COVID-19 vaccines and enjoy music, food, and giveaways. It will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, October 16 at the Holmes High School, Fieldhouse, located at 2500 Madison Avenue, Covington, KY 41014.
