Meijer Offers Customers $10 Coupons to Get Vaccinated
If you've been on the fence about getting the COVID-19 vaccine or just waiting for the right incentive to come along, here's your opportunity to get immunized and save some money on groceries.
Meijer stores in Michigan and throughout the Midwest are offering customers $10 off any purchase just for getting the COVID-19 vaccine at a Meijer pharmacy. There's also a coupon available for anyone who's previously been vaccinated.
By the way (and forgive me for stepping up on my soapbox for just a moment), the best incentive -- in my opinion -- for getting the vaccine is being able to ditch the mask indoors, according to the new guidelines from the CDC.
Already Vaccinated? You Can Still Take Advantage
Additionally, Meijer is offering a coupon good for $10 off a $50 purchase for anyone who has previously been vaccinated either at a Meijer pharmacy or any other location.
Anyone who has previously been vaccinated just needs to show their CDC card (the gigantic, oversized card that is too big to fit in a man's wallet) at the Meijer pharmacy in order to receive their coupon.
Meijer President & CEO Rick Keyes says he hopes the incentive will lead more people to get vaccinated.
"We encourage everyone who is able to receive the vaccine to take this important step and get vaccinated," Keyes said in a press release. "When the vaccine rollout began, our pharmacy teams dedicated themselves to keeping our communities safe. Their efforts have paid off, but we're not done yet. We're hopeful this incentive helps tip the balance."
Shots are available on a walk-in, first-come-first-served basis at Meijer pharmacy locations during regular business hours.
