Full statement from 49ers President Al Guido via Twitter:
"Not a day goes by that we haven't missed hearing 49ers fans in Levi's Stadium and we're thrilled to be able to fully welcome them back for the upcoming season. We want to thank the frontline healthcare workers at Levi's Stadium who have worked tirelessly to drive the largest vaccination site in California. Thanks to their efforts, we've administered nearly 350,000 shots in the name of protecting our community and allowing us to return to the activities and people we love. We'd also like to thank state, county, and local officials for helping to lead us through a tough and unprecedented year. We encourage everyone in our community to get their shot as we get ready to host the Faithful for the upcoming season!"
