Anheuser-Busch Has a Great Incentive to Get Vaccinated Against COVID-19
Anheuser-Busch says that if at least 70 percent of Americans get vaccinated for COVID-19 by July 4th, they will give away free beer.
This is actually a joint venture between Anheuser-Bush and the White House to give away the free beer if 70 percent of Americans have at least one COVID-19 vaccine shot by July 4th.
It's meant to support the White House's campaign to encourage more people to be vaccinated:
Anheuser-Busch CEO Michel Doukeris said in a statement...."At Anheuser-Busch, we are committed to supporting the safe and strong recovery of our nation and being able to be together again at the places and with the people we have missed so much. This commitment includes encouraging Americans to get vaccinated, and we are excited to buy Americans 21+ a round of beer when we reach the White House goal. Doukeris went on to say “We pride ourselves on stepping up both in times of need and in times of great celebration, and the past year has been no different. As we look ahead to brighter days with renewed optimism, we are proud to work alongside the White House to make a meaningful impact for our country, our communities and our consumers.”
The watchdog for having reached the goal of 70 percent by July 4th will be determined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). If they say we reached it, the "Let's Grab a Beer" initiative will go into action as Americans of legal drinking age get to choose from free beer, seltzer, a non-alcoholic beverage or other A-B products which includes a selection of more than 100 products.
If you stop and think about it for a moment, we're not that far away from the 70% goal. So far, 63 percent of adult Americans have received at least one dose.
