Hooray!  Here's an incentive to get the Covid-19 Vaccine.  Beginning today, Krispy Kreme has announced that those who get vaccinated will receive one free glazed doughnut from participating locations. Guess that means we'll see even more traffic on Duportail in Richland. Krispy Kreme is a pretty popular place as it is.

According to the Krispy Kreme website,

“Krispy Kreme is finding ways to be sweet as the U.S. continues to scale COVID-19 vaccinations. To show our support for those who choose to get vaccinated, starting Monday, 3/22, anyone who shows their COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card will receive a free Original Glazed doughnut.”

I've been waiting patiently to get vaccinated. As each day goes on, reading about others getting the first shot seems ok. It's the second shot that most people have concerns about. And, now, Johnson & Johnson has a one-dose treatment.

All you need to do is show proof that you've had your shot. Bring your Covid-19 Vaccination Record Card to Krispy Kreme to cash in and get your sweet, delicious, original glazed doughnut.

There are a few general rules:

A sticker stating that the guest has received a Covid-19 vaccine does NOT qualify for this offer. The guest MUST have their Covid-19 Vaccination Record Card to receive the doughnut.

Of course, the offer is for ONE FREE original glazed doughnut.

Krispy Kreme is offering an option for those who do NOT wish to be vaccinated.

If you have made the personal decision to not receive the COVID vaccine, please visit us on Mondays, 3/29/21 – 5/24/21, to receive a free Original Glazed® doughnut and a medium brewed coffee to get your week off to a good start.

I am all in to take advantage of this offer!  What about you?
