Gritty and the Flyers are now in the vaccination game.
As fans get back in arenas and stadiums and COVID-19 vaccines are available to every American, The Philadelphia Flyers want to help you get a shot.
The Flyers have kicked off their "Take Your Shot" campaign, the first local and NHL team to put full weight into the cause of helping get enough Americans to get one of covid shots and to create a true herd immunity. Flyers mascot Gritty and head coach Alain Vigneault are encouraging fans to "Take Your Shot," and will be all over the city at vaccination sites and events over the next week or so.
Today, the Flyers are teaming with the Black Doctors COVID-19 Consortium to target Black communities hit hard by the pandemic. Gritty will be on Temple's campus where you can go get your shot. Dr. Ala Stanford, founder of Black Doctors COVID-19 Consortium, says they are grateful for the Flyers' support.
Then this Saturday and Sunday, April 24 from 3-5 p.m., Gritty and the Flyers organization will head to the Delaware County and Penn Medicine large-scale community vaccination site at Radnor High School. They hope to vaccinate 3,000 people over two days.
Go meet Gritty and get your shot!!
