McDonald’s offers COVID-19 vaccine, free food at select California restaurants
Do you want fries with your COVID-19 vaccine?
Twenty McDonald’s locations in the Bay Area are offering a free vaccine and a free food item to residents who have not yet been vaccinated. No insurance or appointment is necessary.
The partnership is with the California Department of Public Health and is running statewide, with 76 McDonald’s in California offering the promotion.
A large majority of McDonald’s branches offering this special vaccine are in Solano County, the least vaccinated of the nine Bay Area counties with 55% of its population (and nearly 73% of its working-age residents) vaccinated with at least one dose. (The Bay Area’s other eight counties have at least 64% of its population receiving the first dose and at least more than half of eligible residents fully vaccinated.)
Santa Clara and San Francisco counties each have two McDonalds locations offering this offer; locations in Santa Clara County are expected to open later this week, while information is forthcoming on those in San Francisco.
The offer began statewide on Monday, but only two Bay Area sites have clinics open — both are in Solano County. For more information on when these events take place, visit the McDonald’s California website here.
