Buffalo Bills become fourth NFL team with vaccine mandate for fans


Fresh off a home loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers to open the 2021 NFL season, the Buffalo Bills head to South Beach to take on the Miami Dolphins next week.

Once they return home for Week 3 against the Washington Football Team, fans planning on attending games at Highmark Stadium in Western New York will be required to provide proof of a COVID-19 vaccine.

In heeding the new Erie County Department of Health’s directive, fans 12 and older will have to provide proof that they have received at least one shot of the vaccine up until October 31. After that, only fully-vaccinated (two doses) fans 12 and older will be allowed in the stadium. The Buffalo Bills did announce that those under the age of 12 don’t have to be vaccinated, but will be required to wear masks. All vaccinated individuals won’t have to mask up.
