KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The NFL is telling the federal government it will make the remaining of the league’s 30 stadiums available as COVID-19 vaccination sites.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is making the offer to President Joe Biden in a letter obtained by The Associated Press.

There are already seven NFL stadiums serving as vaccine sites.

They are in Arizona, Atlanta, Baltimore, Carolina, Houston, Miami and New England.

Goodell says stadiums should be able to get prepared quickly because of previous offers as virus testing centers and election sites.

On Tuesday, Kansas City Chiefs president Mark Donovan said the team was in talks to make Arrowhead Stadium a mass vaccination site.
