The CDC reportedly paid the NFL Alumni Association 3.5 million dollars to promote the COVID-19 vaccine.  According to TMZ Sports, the US Federal Procurement docs show that the CDC and the NFL Alumni Association signed the deal in May 2021.

The total contract of $3.5 million was allocated to the NFL Alumni (NFLA) Health COVID-19 Vaccination Community Outreach and Education Project. The NFLA website details the partnership with the CDC, but conveniently leaves out the outrageous payment to push the vaccine.  The site also provides links to a “Vaccination Tracker” and vax locations.

Prior to awarding multi-million dollar contract, the CDC issued this Notice of Intent, announcing the grant…

“The [CDC] intends to award a sole source firm fixed price purchase order to The NFL Alumni Association (NFLA). The overall purpose of this contract is to facilitate collaboration among NFL Alumni and federal state and local public health officials as well as other local leaders to address vaccine hesitancy through communication and engagement with communities less likely to get vaccinated.”

“The CDC Vaccine Task Force will work directly with the NFLA to promote community-level and national COVID-19 education outreach and vaccination acceptance.”

The NFL Alumni Association is a separate entity from the NFL, but you must have played or coached in the league to be a member. With that said, the Association’s decision to push an experimental drug that’s threatening the careers of current NFL players who refuse to take the jab is extremely questionable.
