The new perk is one of many in the company’s new campaign to support everyone getting vaccinated and those administering the shots, including surprise deliveries of free dozens to vaccination centers throughout the country.
Krispy Kreme is offering employees up to four hours of paid time off to encourage and enable them to get their vaccination.
It also announced Motivation Mondays to help Americans kick off the week on a high note, offering a free medium coffee and a free original glazed doughnut, no purchase necessary, every Monday from March 29 through May 24.

The company also extended its “Be Sweet Weekends” promotion that gives guests who purchase any dozen a second $1 dozen that includes 11 original glazed doughnuts and one special smiley-face doughnut to safely share with a friend or neighbors. The promotion is in effect from March 26 through May 23.
Throughout 2020, the doughnut chain gave away over 30 million of its classic confections to health care workers, first responders, teachers, coaches, graduating seniors, neighbors and more.
“We all want to get COVID-19 behind us as fast as possible and we want to support everyone doing their part to make the country safe by getting vaccinated as soon as the vaccine is available to them,” Dave Skena, Krispy Kreme chief marketing officer, said in a statement.
