Krispy Kreme Is Giving Out Free Donuts All Year—All You Have To Do Is Get Vaccinated

Make getting your shots even sweeter.

During the pandemic, brands stepped up to the plate to give a helping hand to those on the frontline. McDonald’s offered free food, and Starbucks gave out free coffee to healthcare workers.

As COVID-19 vaccination efforts ramp up in states around the country, brands are continuing to go all-in to encourage people to get the shot as quickly as possible. Back in January, brands like Budweiser skipped out on a Super Bowl commercial spot to redirect money towards vaccination awareness instead. And now Krispy Kreme, who handed out free doughnuts to healthcare workers back in March, is bringing ’em back again, but this time for anyone who’s gotten a vaccine!

All You Have To Do is Show Your Vaccination Card

Getting a vaccine is great, but getting a free Glazed Original to go with it makes it so much better. If nothing else, it’ll soothe the pain of that sore arm! According to a statement, the brand said that this deal can be used, “anytime, any day, even every day—through the remainder of 2021.” It’s the sweetest deal we’ve heard of yet!

The chain is also offering employees four hours of paid time off so that they can get their own shots. And that’s not all—doughnuts will also be going out to “select vaccination centers throughout the country in the coming weeks,” keeping in line with their support of healthcare workers.

But Wait—There’s More

You can also pick up an Original Glazed to get your week off to a sweet start! Every Monday from March 29 to May 4, participating Krispy Kreme locations will be offering a free Orginal Glazed and a free medium coffee to all customers, no purchase necessary.

But hey, just because you can get it for free, donut skip out on your vaccine! Depending on what state you live in, you might be able to get an appointment at your nearest Walmart or Sam’s Club for the vaccine.
