From food to apparel, beauty, electronics, and more, here are some of the discounts and freebies you can get when you’re vaccinated.
As more and more people get vaccinated every day, the country is slowly inching its way towards herd immunity. For their part, local businesses are doing what they can to entice, encourage, and for some, even educate more people to get vaccinated.

It should be noted though that the main reason why you should get vaccinated is that you want to protect yourself and others. These discounts are nice, but they’re more just icing on the top. Also, just because you’re vaccinated does not mean you can disregard safety protocols. Wear your mask, observe social distancing, and practice proper hygiene. If you do avail of any of these promos, do so in a safe, responsible, and proper way.
