The NFL is mandating coronavirus booster shots for team staff members who work closely with players.  According to the New York Times, more COVID cases have been reported this season than last year despite the vaccination rate of players being over 94-percent.  This comes as 37 players tested for positive for the virus on Monday, which is the highest one day total since the pandemic started.  In a memo, the NFL ordered coaches and team employees working directly with players to get their booster shots by December 27th or face being relegated to non-contact roles.
