JBS Hyrum today announced it will hold free Covid-19 vaccine clinics and give away free meat for a year to two lucky winners (one per clinic). In partnership with the Bear River Health Department, the clinics will be held on Aug. 7 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Aug. 9 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the health department (655 E. 1300 N., Logan).

As part of the JBS USA mission to vaccinate Americans in the rural communities where the company operates, it is awarding one winner at each clinic who receives their first vaccine with free beef, pork and poultry to feed a family of four for a year. Additionally, everyone receiving a vaccine will be given five pounds of ground beef. Nearly 65% of JBS Hyrum team members have been vaccinated to date. 

“Every Covid-19 vaccine received will help keep our team members and our community safe and healthy,” said Darren Olsen, JBS Hyrum plant manager. “This sweepstakes is a great incentive to encourage everyone to come out and do their part to help put an end to the pandemic.”

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.
