The New Orleans Saints say they are encouraging fans to get vaccinated for COVID-19, but the team says it isn't intending to make it a requirement to attend games in the 2021 season.

"The New Orleans Saints have no intention of requiring that our fans provide any confirmation of a COVID vaccination to attend our games. However, we do encourage our fans to get vaccinated," the Saints organization said in a tweet Friday.

The statement came in response to a WWL-TV report that Louisiana Stadium and Exposition District officials were considering such a requirement. This post has been updated from its original version to reflect the new information.



Stadium officials said they will be monitoring vaccination rates, according to the report, and are hopeful to have a full stadium for games in the upcoming season. LSED would be the ultimate decision-maker on requirement to enter the dome.

ďWeíve got to be careful that all of the fans that are coming into that facility are vaccinated accordingly, so that we donít get a COVID spread,Ē LSED Chairman Kyle France said in WWL-TV's report. ďThatís very, very important.Ē

Dumb in my opinion.

Vaccine is free and can save you / your loved ones. I think it should be an incentive.

Want to watch the Saints? Do your bit in helping society get back to normal first.

What makes it worse is you'd probably run so slow it would be more like sauntering than streaking. Talk about some burned retinas.

I donít smoke, I wear my seat belt, and I got the vaccine. But I donít think smokers who donít wear their seat belts and donít want the vaccine should be barred from participating in society.

No, but I'm not going to want my tax money paying for their healthcare because of COVID-19 causing complications to their damaged lungs from years of smoking while hospitalized for being thrown from their vehicle in a wreck. It's a b!tch they can't make the game Sunday.

Just saying.

Thereís a lot of things I donít like my tax dollars going to, many of them more aggravating than that scenario!

I am going to get the vax, but not right now. I am not antivax. I just want the one- shot. One vax.

I agree with everyone.

Saintsí fans turn up n Ď out like never before . Fill the Dome to capacity. I sure hope so anyway.
