Philly Councilman Allan Domb Wants Lincoln Financial Field As Mass Vaccination Site

Philadelphia Councilmember-at-Large Allan Domb returns to the Dom Giordano Program to discuss his push with Bob Brady and a team of other local politicians to turn Lincoln Financial Field into a mass vaccination site, an initiative they’ve titled Operation Philly Special. Prior to the Super Bowl, President Biden noted that all NFL stadiums should be used as mass vaccination sites, with both Roger Goodell and Jeffrey Lurie confirming the offer of Lincoln Financial Field for usage as a vaccination site. Strangely, Mayor Jim Kenney has denied the offer, with the position that privileged white people from the suburbs would jump the line to receive the vaccine if placed in South Philadelphia. Domb notes that this is a real concern, but they have facts and figures that show that this theory is inaccurate, using both Baltimore and Atlanta as evidence against the claim. Domb lays forth the plan, explaining how they can control that Philadelphians are first in line, and tells why this is incredibly important for the residents of Philadelphia.

Brady tells that he first called Mayor Kenney, who largely dismissed the idea. Brady explains that he and the rest of the team just want to offer Philadelphians the maximum number of options, and tells of methods that the city can control who exactly is getting the vaccine, in an effort to weed out people not from Philadelphia.
