Krispy Kreme is hoping to convince people to get vaccinated against COVID-19, and they are offering FREE doughnuts if you can prove you got the shots!
According to a press release issued by the company, all Krispy Kreme locations are offering a free freshly cooked glazed doughnut for anyone who can bring a valid vaccination card to the restaurant.
The offer will be valid until the end of 2021 and will be available at any location. The sweet deal was confirmed by the company via Twitter and has caused quite the commotion on social media.
“We all want to get COVID-19 behind us as fast as possible and we want to support everyone doing their part to make the country safe by getting vaccinated as soon as the vaccine is available to them,” the company tweeted.
Adding, “Tweet this Starting today, guests who show a valid COVID-19 vaccination card at any Krispy Kreme shop in the U.S. can receive a free iconic Original Glazed® doughnut – anytime, any day, even every day – through the remainder of 2021.”
Krispy Kreme is not only supporting citizens who get their vaccinations — they are also offering up free doughnuts to volunteers working at vaccination sites.
According to the company, Krispy Kreme is delivering free doughnuts to workers and volunteers who are helping administer the vaccines. They will start sending the products out immediately to select vaccination centers throughout the country.
Plus, for its own employees, KK is offering up to four hours of paid time off to each person encouraging them to get their Coronavirus vaccine.
The company also launched “Be Sweet Weekends,” offering customers who purchase a dozen doughnuts an additional dozen to share safely with a friend or neighbor for just $1.
Earlier this month, President Biden directed states, Tribes, and territories to make all adults eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine no later than May 1. As part of this strategy, Americans can expect the launching of a federally-backed website focused on finding vaccines by location.
