Kroger is also continuing to give $100 to associates who become fully vaccinated.

The company said the program is a result of a collaboration with the President Joe Biden’s administration to encourage increased vaccinations, with a goal of at least 70% of adults vaccinated with their first dose by July 10.

In the release, Kroger Chairman and CEO Rodney McMullen said, “The faster we reach community immunity, the sooner we can all get back to enjoying backyard barbecues, live music and gathering for special occasions.”

The grocery store said its Kroger Health division has given more than 4.6 million COVID-19 vaccines.
