It might be assumed, in my perhaps naive perspective, that the only motivation an individual would require to receive an essential vaccine in the midst of a global pandemic would be, well, staying alive. However, despite the increasing rate of vaccinations across the United States, there remains a significant portion of the population who have openly stated their reluctance to get vaccinated. If we aim to overcome this situation promptly, we need to offer some extra incentives. It’s time to introduce… the complimentary donuts.

Yesterday, the US donut chain Krispy Kreme, which recently introduced a special donut inspired by Mars to celebrate the Perseverance rover’s landing, unveiled another, arguably more practical promotion. Until the end of 2021, individuals who visit a Krispy Kreme store and present a COVID-19 vaccination card confirming they’ve received at least one dose are eligible to receive a free original glazed donut, no strings attached. Moreover, this promotion isn’t a one-time event; it explicitly states that free donut redemption is limited to “one redemption per guest per day,” meaning that if a vaccinated individual so desires, they can enjoy a complimentary Krispy Kreme donut every day for the entire remaining year.

For those who opt not to get vaccinated, Krispy Kreme is extending a similar offer of complimentary donuts, albeit on a smaller scale. Beginning on Monday, March 29, and continuing every subsequent Monday until May 24, anyone can enjoy a free donut, along with a cup of coffee, without the need for a vaccination card. So essentially, the options are to receive a crucial vaccine and relish complimentary donuts every day for a year, or skip that and savor a free donut once a week for a few weeks. The decision appears quite straightforward to me.

(function() {

var loaded = false;
var loadFB = function() {
if (loaded) return;
loaded = true;
(function (d, s, id) {
var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];
if (d.getElementById(id)) return;
js = d.createElement(s); = id;
js.src = “//”;
fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);
}(document, ‘script’, ‘facebook-jssdk’));
setTimeout(loadFB, 0);
document.body.addEventListener(‘bimberLoadFbSdk’, loadFB);
