Dozens Of New England Healthcare Workers Are Going To Super Bowl

BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Dozens of health care workers from all over New England are getting a first-class ride on the Patriots' team plane to this year's Super Bowl game in Tampa, Florida.

76 front line workers will be treated to an all-expenses paid trip this Sunday, including flights on the Patriots' plane, tickets to see the Kansas City Chiefs play the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and two nights stay at a hotel.

New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft said the trip has a two-fold message; to thank the health care worker for their hard work during the pandemic, and to highlight the importance of getting vaccinated against the virus.

The healthcare workers leave Sunday morning from Gillette Stadium. All those on board will have been vaccinated for COVID-19.

The group will have a police escort all the way to the runway at Boston's Logan Airport, where they'll get onboard the same plane that delivered one million masks from China last April, with the state needed them the most.
