Bucs head coach Bruce Arians has been a strong and outspoken advocate for his players and staff getting the COVID-19 vaccinated to, in his words, get back to normal.

Now the Bucs are trying to get more area residents to get the vaccine and are offering an incentive – get vaccinated, and get a photo with the Lombardi Trophy.

Hillsborough County is holding a vaccination clinic at Mt. Olive AME Church on Wednesday for those ages 12 and up and in doing so they will receive an opportunity to have a photo with the trophy.

The event is being held at 1902 W. La Salle St. from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Parents or guardians of those under the age of 18 must be present to approve the vaccinations. The event is offering the Pfizer vaccine that requires a second dose in three to four weeks.

The vaccines are free of charge.

The U.S.has seen the numbers of cases of COVID-19 drop significantly in 2021 especially compared to this time last year where the pandemic had much of the country shut down and changed the professionals sports landscape dramatically. With the cases dropping, the Buccaneers have announced a plan to be at full capacity at Raymond James Stadium for all Bucs games in 2021. The team will also host fans at 16 of their training camp practices this season. Last year there were no open camp practices and the NFL and the NFLPA agreed to not play any preseason games.

Back in May Arians spoke about the feeling of being back in the building this season compared to last.

“There’s a different feeling in the whole building,” Arians said following an OTA workout. “Everybody came to work and was like, ‘Wow.’ There is a different vibe in the building. It does feel great. It feels fantastic.”

I normally don’t mind getting vaccinated for anything, but with the large number of people who I know personally having bad adverse reactions to the current vaccines for COVID, I’m really having a hard time justifying a vaccination right now.

Bad adverse reaction to the vaccine? And you personally know a “large number” of people who have had this? Why isn’t this on the news?

The only large number of adverse reactions I’ve heard of is the more than 600,000+ Americans who have died from the disease the vaccine essentially prevents you from getting.

More people have died from the vaccine (VAERS) then actually corona virus itself. The CDC data is there for all to see.

Wow! And we wonder why the state of society is the way that it is. Any side effects from the vaccine, however minuscule they may be, are much better than the effects of contacting the CoVid 19 virus which among certain populations with existing morbidities is near fatal if not deadly. And for those who survive this dreaded virus the science says there is a great chance that it could have long time implications for some internal organs. It’s called a pandemic for a reason. We must all do our part to eradicate this horrible virus.

Right right. From the CDC website you said that the data is there for all to see. “During this time, VAERS received 5,718 reports of death (0.0018%) among people who received a COVID-19 vaccine.” Definitely more than the 604K deaths due to covid. You’re good at math.

You are way off. So far off you can’t even see on from where you are.

I’ve had the vaccine. NO “adverse reactions”. My wife and three of my girls have been vaccinated. NO “adverse reactions”. (My fourth daughter is too young right now. She will be vaccinated as soon as she can.) I literally know over 100 family members, coworkers, and friends who have been vaccinated. Not one of them has had any adverse reactions. Not one. Those who are choosing not to vaccinate are keeping COVID numbers way too high. Those who want things to return “to normal”-which means everyone-should get the damn vaccine. This vaccine can literally save your life and/or those around… Read more »

I agree! It’s just awful when a viral pandemic is politicized. Protect yourself and your love ones by being responsible and get the vaccine. It’s just a matter of time that those who haven’t been vaccinated will have limited options of travel by plane, cruise, and entrance to some public places.

Tender arm for the first, nothing really for the second and peace of mind that I was doing all in my power to stop the spread of a killer virus and act as a responsible member of the community.

These current “vaccines” are a money making scheme for big pharma. People that have taken the vaccines will have life long ailments due to the spike proteins spreading to nearby organs. Athletes will have more pronounced side effects to the vaccine because their body is in constant inflammation. For those that do not know it is your immune system helps deal with inflammation in your body. Once your immune system becomes dependent upon vaccines and also the vaccine laced with spike proteins spread. That means your body immune system will over react and also can not fight off conventional corona… Read more »

Also, your body can recognize a corona virus 19 even if it is novel virus, because its DNA makeup is still close enough to human corona viruses. Your immune system has already been primed to fight off corona viruses and any other variant.
Also, children have a 99.9% survival rate from recovering from corona virus 19. More children are dying now from the vaccines than the corona virus 19 itself.

And those young people who contact the virus and survive, stand the chance of having side affects that will follow them for a lifetime. So, there’s that.

The vaccines will do more harm than the corona virus 19 itself. It is designed to keep people going back to the medical system to deal with the side effects of the vaccine for a life time.

I don’t know bro… without the vaccine I was home bound and wearing masks and sometimes even gloves. With the vaccine, I hope to see my Buccaneers live for 3-4 games. Seems like a no brainer to me, but u do u bro.

Yeah, it’s all a big hoax – a vast global conspiracy to sell vaccines. The millions that have died were volunteers who willingly gave their lives to further the cause. What heroes they were!

Anyone afraid to get the vaccine is stupid. And a pu$$y.

I say, “to each his own”. First shot, nothing but a slightly sore arm. Second shot, slightly sore arm and felt tingly in my back for a couple of hours. My philosophy has always been that I don’t want to have the doctor tell me, “Well Scubog, if you would have come in two weeks ago we could have saved you. Now, please pay cash, you’re a goner.” Never quite understood those people on Dr. Pimple Popper who have this 20 pound growth hanging off their ass that started off as a little zit and it never dawned on them… Read more »
