Kroger Health Kicks Off $5 Million #CommunityImmunity Giveaway
Starting today and through July 10, customers and associates are eligible for the chance to win one of five $1 million checks or groceries for a year
CINCINNATI, June 3, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Kroger Health, the healthcare division of The Kroger Co. (NYSE: KR), is eager to motivate more Americans to get the COVID-19 vaccine to better protect communities across America. Through the newly launched #CommunityImmunity Giveaway, Kroger Health will provide customers and Kroger Family of Companies associates the opportunity to win life-changing prizes like one of five $1 million checks or one of 50 "groceries for a year." The giveaway starts today and runs through July 10, 2021, with winners scheduled to be selected weekly.
The #CommunityImmunity Giveaway was created by Kroger Health to support the Biden Administration's national effort to have at least 70% of U.S. adults receive their first COVID-19 vaccine dose by July 4.
"Since day one of this pandemic, the Kroger organization's most urgent priority has been the health and safety of our associates, customers, and communities," said Rodney McMullen, Kroger's chairman and CEO. "Kroger's #CommunityImmunity Giveaway is designed to inspire more adults to get vaccinated and help America recover and move ahead."
How the #CommunityImmunity Giveaway Works:
As of today, the Kroger Health's organization's pharmacists, nurse practitioners, and healthcare technicians have administered more than 4.7 million COVID-19 vaccines — and that number continues to increase daily. Kroger Health has created more equitable access to the COVID-19 vaccine through its scheduling tool, walk-in appointments, and mass vaccination off-site clinics. According to the CDC, 62.8% of adults in America have received at least one vaccination shot.
"Kroger Health is here to help America reach community immunity, using vaccines authorized by the Food and Drug Administration for every race, gender, and various age groups," said Dr. Marc Watkins, Kroger Health's chief medical officer. "We remain committed to helping people live healthier lives and serving as an accessible and knowledgeable COVID-19 vaccination partner and healthcare resource for our enterprise's half a million associates and millions of daily customers. We're hopeful the #CommunityImmunity Giveaway will encourage more people to get vaccinated and prioritize their health and those they care about."
