JBS Green Bay today announced it will hold a free Covid-19 vaccine clinic and give away free meat for a year to one lucky winner. In partnership with Bellin Health Systems and the Brown County Health and Human Services Department - Public Health Division, the clinic will be held on Aug. 18 from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Farmers Market on Broadway in Downtown Green Bay.

As part of the JBS USA mission to vaccinate Americans in the rural communities where the company operates, it is awarding one winner at the clinic who receives their first vaccine with free beef, pork and poultry to feed a family of four for a year. Anyone receiving a vaccine will also receive a free half ribeye and a backpack filled with school supplies. To date, more than 75% of JBS Green Bay team members have been vaccinated. 

“We’re encouraging everyone to add a Covid-19 vaccination to their back-to-school list this year,” said Hicham Timejardine, JBS Green Bay general manager. “Every vaccine received will help keep our team members, our loved ones, and our community safe and healthy.”

JBS USA has promoted vaccination among its workforce of more than 66,000 employees with great success. The company’s vaccination program includes onsite clinics, paid time off, a $100 incentive bonus and a multi-lingual education campaign. As a result of these efforts, nearly 70% of its U.S. workforce has been vaccinated.

The vaccination rate of team members at many of the JBS facilities exceeds the average rate of vaccination in the surrounding community by more than 2-3 times. JBS USA wants to help change this dynamic and raise local community vaccination rates to help safeguard its hometowns across the country. 

The JBS USA “Your Shot at Free Meat for a Year” sweepstakes campaign builds on the company’s Hometown Strong initiative, which is contributing more than $70 million to support its local communities across the country during the pandemic. Learn more here.
