In compliance with the Erie County Department of Health's directive, the Buffalo Bills and Highmark Stadium announced Tuesday that all guests age 12 and older will be required to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination to attend Bills home games.
For the games on September 26 and October 3, fans will be permitted to enter with one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. Beginning with the October 31 game, guests must be fully vaccinated for entry. Guests are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after their second dose in a two-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or two weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson's vaccine.
"We've worked collaboratively with the county over the last several weeks, months, all throughout the pandemic," Pegula Sports and Entertainment executive vice president Ron Raccuia said. "We are looking to provide the safest environment for our fans that we possibly can. We're thankful for this collaboration. We feel like this is the right move going forward."

Guests that are under 12 will not be required to have a vaccination but will be required to wear a mask at all times while inside Highmark Stadium. Guests that are 12 or older will no longer need to wear masks due to the vaccination requirements. The Bills will begin enforcing the new policy starting with the team's game on September 26 vs. Washington.
To verify COVID-19 vaccination, guests age 12 and older will be required to display one of the following before entering the stadium:
· Physical Vaccination Card (photo will NOT be accepted)
· NYS Excelsior Pass
· Clear Digital Vaccine Card
· Government digital vaccine proof from outside NYS
Guests CANNOT present a photo of a physical vaccine card.
COVID-19 negative test results will not be accepted for entry. There will be no exceptions granted to this policy.
your papers please
Let them play in an empty stadium.
I think they have a receiver there that’s refusing to take the jab. Wonder if he is playing.
Players too, right?
People will just forge the vax records. Certainly easier than forging a fake DL back in the day.
Nope. The lemmings will still go. They packed the Raiders game last night.
The owners of the Buffalo Bills announced about 1 month ago that they want a new $1.4 billion stadium, and that they expect the County and State to pay for most of it.
So agreeing to a vaccine mandate was certainly not going to be an issue.
Counterfeit vaccine cards are easily done in a few minutes.
They did that for the entirety of the 2020 season.
Poloncarz and overtime Bernstein they make me sick.
Our lawsuit is being written now
Yes and we have a lawsuit in front of the judge right now for masks in school
Abbott & Costello Go to a Raiders’ Game
Thanks for buying those season tickets...
And Pigula wants a deal done before he signs another lease.
It’s his wife that is controlling him.
I’m sure there are folks pushing to for the un-jabbed players to join in - oh what a poop storm that’ll start...
... check that - it’s already started.
Sure has.... Fun times right now. Honestly.
The stuff we are doing behind the scenes is awesome.
Stay tuned : )
