County officials say only fully vaccinated fans will be allowed at Bills games

Some Bills players are declining to get the COVID-19 vaccine, but Bills fans are being told they can’t attend games unless they’re fully vaccinated.

The Bills play at Highmark Stadium, which is owned by Erie County, and Erie County officials are continuing to say that unvaccinated fans are not allowed, according to the Buffalo News.

But county officials have been saying that for two months, and the state has said that the county isn’t allowed to make that policy. The state of New York has told the Bills they can fully open at 100 percent capacity without restrictions.

Realistically, it seems unlikely that the county will be able to enforce a vaccine requirement. The COVID-19 vaccine is safe and effective and everyone should get it, but it’s probably inevitable that some unvaccinated people will be at Bills games, both on the field and in the stands.

  1. The vaccine is safe but yet some get very ill or die from it. The vaccine is effective yet thousands of vaccinated get covid19.

  2. Same people are anti-vaccine that were anti-mask before. Maybe you’re just pro-virus?

    Perhaps if Josh Allen, Cole Beasley, Jordan Bush and the rest of the Bills led by example, the fans would simply get the vaccine without having to be required to.

    Unfortunately they are on Montez Sweat’s team “need more information” …. AKA I’d rather risk getting a deadly virus which has killed millions, than a vaccine with extremely limited risk of side effects…. SMDH

  3. They could do an end-around the state by only allowing those who can hang silverware on their face to pass through.

  4. So scary to see this coming a mile away. Have this or you can’t get in. Many said this would happen. I have the vaccine if it works why would I care if I was around someone who wasn’t. Same with others. Pure discrimination and much worse than that as it opens the door for even greater pressures on people to give up freedoms.

    Thank the good lord it’s only a game and no one has to go stay home don’t go watch. At least for now you can be in your own home with or without the Vax. But soon enough grocery stores, shopping you name it. We only service the Vaxed………..Costco will be next, then Walmart and then wow our world is emploding.

  5. Might as well ask if people had a polio and mumps shot in 1966 like I did.

  6. It’s only a ruse by the county to get more people vaccinated. By September it will be game on.

  7. I’m fully vaccinated. But I love how something can have an emergency approval and be deemed safe and effective with 100% certainty. There is a reason that most approvals take much longer. Once in awhile something that seems safe and effective, isn’t. I got the vaccine so I can live a somewhat normal life. I live alone and I was going crazy. I also work in transportation, so it makes my life easier. But for those that would rather wait, I don’t judge them. Besides, 100% of the people were never needed for herd immunity.

  8. The vaccine is safe but yet some get very ill or die from it. The vaccine is effective yet thousands of vaccinated get covid19.

    Correct, the vaccine is not 100% effective nor is there a 0% chance of side effects. What’s your point?

  9. Might as well ask if people had a polio and mumps shot in 1966 like I did.

    That is a mandatory vaccination. If you got it in 1966, all you have to do is raise your shirt sleeve on your left arm and theres a scar from it.

    Kids still have to have it before going to school. No one bitches about that though, because the vaccine has basically wiped those diseases out.

    Funny how that works.

  10. Private business making a business decision that it feels serves it best. If you’re cool with a bakery refusing to make a cake for a gay wedding, you should be cool with this.

  11. So let’s all for a few minutes pretend that we are all just Americans and take all other labels out and Politics out of this situation in our country right now. Are we still fighting over beliefs of how Severe or Deadly COVID 19 really is and shutting everyone’s life down? See Past Virus’s before President Donald Trump…..
