Krispy Kreme Now Offering Vaccinated Americans Two Free Doughnuts

Krispy Kreme is giving some sweet incentive via its campaign to support those who get vaccinated by offering every American who has received at least one vaccination shot TWO free doughnuts any time, every day from August 30 through September 5. 

The campaign to give one Original Glazed doughnut each day to anyone who has received at least one vaccination shot will resume on September 6 and continue for the remainder of the year.

Since the vaccination campaign began back in March, more than 2.5 million Original Glazed doughnuts have been given away.

Doing your part to protect yourself and others while scoring some free doughnuts? Sounds like a win-win to me.

Krispy Kreme Is Giving Away Free Doughnuts To Anyone Who Got A Vaccine

In the past couple of weeks, the United States has begun administering a record number of vaccinations in the battle against COVID-19. More than 10 million US residents have received at least one dose of the vaccine already, and with that comes free donuts.

Krispy Kreme just announced that guests will receive a free original glazed doughnut by simply bringing in their COVID-19 vaccination card to any participating location in the United States. This is available for anyone who shows their card, each day, through the end of 2021.

It’s that easy.

The brand is also giving its employees paid time off to schedule their own vaccinations.

Even if you belong to that group that doesn’t believe the vaccine will do anything. Isn’t a free dose at least worth some doughnuts?

Science Creates the World’s First Alcoholism Vaccine

liquor-bottles

Scientists in Chile have spent the past year designing a drug that will give anyone who drinks alcohol an immediate (and very nasty) hangover.

We won’t lie, that sounds like a pretty evil plan, but it’s for a good cause — they’re trying to treat addiction. A research team at the Universidad de Chile has spent a year developing a vaccine for alcoholism. Basically, the vaccine works by sending biochemical messages to the liver not to express genes that metabolize alcohol. If someone who’s had the vaccine tries to drink alcohol, they’ll experience severe nausea, tachycardia (accelerated heartbeat), and general discomfort—basically a medically induced hangover of epic proportions.

The Santiago Times reported that the Universidad is looking to launch a preclinical trial of the vaccine next month, followed by a seven-month-long study in India, so it’ll be awhile before the vaccine is available to the general public.
