An American doughnuts company, which has branches in Nigeria, Krispy Kreme, has found a way to make its customers get vaccinated by offering free doughnuts for getting the jab.

In a statement, the company said starting Monday until the end of the year, with a vaccination card at any Krispy Kreme location in the US, customers can get a free glazed doughnut each day.

According to the company, the card must show one or two shots of any of the COVID-19 vaccines to qualify and it must be redeemed at a store.

The company noted that the customers don’t need to buy anything to get their daily free doughnut.

“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,” said Dave Skena, Krispy Kreme chief marketing officer.

However, the company acknowledges that not everyone will get the vaccine.

“We understand that choosing to receive the COVID-19 vaccine is a highly personal decision,” the news release said.

It was stated that those who decide not to get the COVID-19 vaccine can still get a free glazed doughnut and a medium coffee on Mondays from March 29 to May 24.

The promotions are all part of their Be Sweet initiative to inspire joy and kindness, the firm stated and Krispy Kreme’s vaccine support is not limited to store customers.

The retailer is also offering its employees an incentive to get the vaccine with four hours of paid time off to get vaccinated.

In addition, Krispy Kreme will support health care workers and volunteers who are helping administer vaccines, delivering free doughnuts to select vaccination centres throughout the country in the coming weeks.
