Patriots Plane Delivers Half A Million COVID Vaccines To El Salvador

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — The New England Patriots continue to use their resources to help during the coronavirus pandemic.

Gillette Stadium has served as a mass COVID-19 vaccination site, and the Patriot's plane delivered half a million COVID vaccines to El Salvador on Tuesday.

An official government Twitter account for El Salvador shared pictures of the plane's arrival at Oscar Arnulfo Romero International Airport.

El Salvador is currently ranked a "3" by the CDC, meaning "travelers should avoid all nonessential travel." There is a reported 71,000 cases and 2,100 deaths in the country.

Earlier this year, the team used their plane to fly healthcare workers to the Super Bowl in Tampa Bay.
