What? Walgreens will offer $ 25 gift cards to buyers who get vaccinated
There are a few Walgreens stores in Harlem, so if you haven’t gotten a COVID-19 vaccine yet, Walgreens has a new offer that might get you going to get one.
The company announced today that it will offer $ 25 in-store gift cards to people who get vaccinated at any of its stores by Saturday, June 26, 2021.
Company says incentive is made to support government pressure to protect more people from coronavirus consumer affairs reports.
“Walgreens is providing an additional incentive to encourage more people to get vaccinated against COVID-19 in support of President Biden’s National Month of Action,” the company said in a statement.
Consumers who have a myWalgreens account will have immediate access to $ 25 cash rewards after being vaccinated; those who do not have an account will be able to opt for a physical gift card after taking their shot.
While young children are not eligible to receive rewards, parents of teens aged 12-15 can use the offer on their behalf if they are vaccinated at a store within the eligible timeframe.
To help bolster the vaccination effort, the company said it will also extend pharmacy opening hours on Friday, June 25, 2021 at 4,000 locations so more people have the opportunity to get vaccinated.
