Everywhere You Can Get Free Food & Other Perks with Your Vaccine Card
You shouldn't need free stuff to get vaccinated, but it's there if you want it.
Nabbing a free snack for doing what you were doing anyhow is the best kind of promotion. There are a whole lot of companies doing just that, offering you free food or other perks for showing proof that you're fully vaccinated. You can wind up with some free beer from Sam Adams, a donut from Krispy Kreme, or a hot dog from Nathan's, among other treats—just for getting your COVID-19 vaccine.
We've put together a running list of all the places offering perks for showing your vaccine card. Here's what you can get:
