About the Campaign

In December 2022, NFL Alumni launched the “GEAR UP, Tennessee!” Campaign, a statewide vaccine awareness and education campaign, in partnership with the State of Tennessee Department of Health. 

More than a dozen former Titans and NFL stars with ties to the State of Tennessee are lending their voices and encouraging Tennesseans to keep themselves and their families healthy by staying game ready and making an informed decision about getting vaccinated and boosted.

As part of the GEAR UP! campaign, NFL Alumni is teaming up with several public and private sector leaders and community organizations across the state to host public events, townhalls, listening sessions, and vaccine clinics. The Campaign also includes media interviews, public service announcements, and social media to raise awareness of the importance of staying healthy by preparing your immune system to tackle serious illness through vaccination.

We are urging Tennesseans to GEAR UP! – stay healthy and game ready.

The “GEAR UP, Tennessee!” campaign embodies the triple mission of NFL Alumni, of “Caring for our Own,” “Caring for Kids,” and “Caring for the Community.”
