KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Travis Kelce is partnering with Walgreens to spread the word about COVID-19 vaccinations.

In a video shared on social media, the Chiefs tight end explains that he decided to get vaccinated to get back to what matters most.

“We’ve been playing defense against COVID-19, but now, with vaccine available, we can finally play some offense, baby,” Kelce said in a video produced by Walgreens.

“I personally chose to get the vaccine to help protect those around me and get back to doing the things we love,” Kelce tweeted.

In the video, Kelce explains that COVID-19 vaccines are safe, free, and available now. Walgreens, other retail pharmacies, and health departments offer walk-in vaccinations throughout the week.
