McDonald's Locations In Wisconsin Will Begin Offering This Service
McDonald's restaurants in one Midwestern state will soon play host to COVID-19 vaccination clinics, and those who take advantage of this convenient partnership are in for a treat (or two).
According to ABC2, select locations of the chain in Green Bay, Wis. will team up with Prevea Health and set up vaccine clinics that will administer shots of the Pfizer vaccine. The vaccines are completely free and participants don't need to be Prevea patients to get one.
For their part, McDonald's will reward each person who gets a shot with a free ice cream cone as well as a voucher for a free sandwich that can be redeemed during a future visit. A full list of participating locations can be found here.
According to the news outlet, less than 50 percent of Wisconsin residents completed their COVID-19 vaccinations as of July 5.
This isn't the first time McDonald's has lent a hand to vaccination efforts. In May, the chain announced a partnership with the Biden Administration aimed at promoting reliable information about the COVID-19 vaccines. The campaign is promoted on several highly visible pieces of McDonald's advertising real estate, with vaccine information displayed on the fast-food giant's billboard in New York's Times Square and promoted with a coffee-cup takeover kicking off this month.
The chain is putting in circulation some 50 million McCafé Cups featuring a new blue design with "We Can Do This," a slogan created by the Department of Health and Human Services to promote vaccine confidence. The cup will direct people to the government's vaccine website vaccines.gov where they can get more information about protecting themselves and their loved ones from COVID-19 as well as nearby sites where they can make vaccine appointments. The information will also be circulated on McDonald's delivery seal stickers.
