Select Market Basket Locations Giving People Gift Cards For Getting Coronavirus Vaccine

June 3, 2021

Did you get a gift for being vaccinated? Would getting a gift make you more likely to get vaccinated?

Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker announced a new initiative to incentivize people to get the coronavirus vaccine on Wednesday. Starting Thursday, June 3, select Market Basket locations across the state will have vaccination sites. If someone gets a vaccine there, that person will receive a $25 gift card to the store, as WWLP reports.

“We know these are convenient community locations. They’re very heavily traveled, as anybody who’s ever been to one knows,” Baker said, according to the station. “We encourage all residents to come down and get their vaccine while they’re doing their shopping.”

The vaccine clinics will be at the Chelsea, Fall River, Lawrence, Lynn, and Revere locations. The clinics do not require appointments.
