It’s a party in the USA for healthcare workers.
The Plastic Hearts artist wrote, “I’ll be there for TIKTOK TAILGATE!!! I can’t wait to put on a show for the NFL’s honored guests before the game…. Health care workers from Tampa and around the country! Join the tailgate at 2:30 PM ET FEBRUARY 7 on @TikTok & @cbstv.”
The event—which will be held on Feb. 7 just before the two teams face off at the Super Bowl at Raymond James Stadium, the home of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers—will gather more than 7,500 healthcare workers who have already received both shots of the coronavirus vaccine to watch Miley’s sure-to-be exciting performance.
Of the new event, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said in a statement, “These dedicated health care workers continue to put their own lives at risk to serve others, and we owe them our ongoing gratitude. We hope in a small way that this initiative will inspire our country and recognize these true American heroes. This is also an opportunity to promote the importance of vaccination and appropriate health practices, including wearing masks in public settings.”
