WINSTON-SALEM, NC. — In the fight to end the COVID-19 pandemic and to encourage citizens to get vaccinated, Krispy Kreme Doughnuts is offering free donuts to those who have received the vaccine.

Starting March 22, guests who show a valid COVID-19 vaccination card at any Krispy Kreme shop in the United States can receive a free Original Glazed donut, every day through the end of the year.
