The Buccaneers have come up with a good incentive to get the COVID-19 vaccine: A shot comes with a picture with the Lombardi Trophy.

A vaccination clinic in Tampa today will have the Lombardi Trophy on hand, and anyone who gets the shot can take a picture with the trophy.

NFL teams have been promoting the vaccine across the country, and with good reason: The COVID-19 vaccines are the reason that NFL games will once again be played in full stadiums this season.

The vaccines have proven safe and effective, and nearly everyone who dies of COVID-19 is unvaccinated.

  1. The nfl should let all teams that have ever won the trophy borrow it for that purpose. Good promotion job,bucs.

  2. I would really like to understand the reasoning behind all of these “bribes” of the American people to go and get the jab. Super Bowl trophy pics, lottery entries, free food ect ect all to try and influence what is a personal choice for each individual. At the end of the day, it’s a little bit ludicrous don’t you think?

  3. Maybe the reason nearly everyone that dies of COVID are higher for the unvaccinated is because more people are not vaccinated vs people who are , and when you look at the percentages per vaccinated vs unvaccinated it’s really just the same amount .Maybe it doesn’t really matter if you are vaccinated or not .

  4. Pretty creative idea if you ask me. Not sure why anyone would require an incentive to protect themselves, but hey, whatever works.

  5. The Bucs showed an ability to adapt to the player empowerment movement in the NFL this year. From giving Brady the power over the offense and to some degree the roster, they thrived. The result was a championship.

    It makes sense they’re on the right side of adapting to this virus as well.

  6. Getting the two shots protects you from getting a deadly disease. So there’s that. But it also protects those around you, people you love, people you work with, worship with, have fun with. If you don’t get the virus, you won’t pass it along to others. Simple. Bottom line: Not getting vaccinated — because of politics, fear of the needle, macho chest-thumping, whatever — is a selfish act. Getting vaccinated, on the other hand, is wise, patriotic and empathetic. Choose.

    Being “patriotic” or selfish has nothing to do with any of this vaccine hysteria. What is hard to understand about the concept of personal choice? The vaccine also does not stop the spread of COVID or it’s variants, it just “protects” the receiver from the worst symptoms if they were to contract the virus. Those that have recovered from the virus have that same natural immunity.

  8. It’s rather simple as to the reasoning of why incentives are a good idea.
    People often don’t make wise decisions, have bad habits, or do reckless things with their health. Appealing to their logic doesn’t always work, so sometimes tempting their self-interest will.
    If people were always the rational animal that many believe themselves to be, there wouldn’t be so many unhealthy and damaged individuals in this world.
    And there are…
