Pilgrim’s Guntersville today announced it will hold a free Covid-19 vaccine clinic and give away free meat for a year to one lucky winner who gets vaccinated. In partnership with the Marshall County Health Department, the clinic will be held on July 29 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Sand Mountain Park and Amphitheater (700 S.M.P.A. Blvd., Albertville) during the Snead State Job Fair & Career Expo.                                   

As part of Pilgrim’s goal to vaccinate Americans in the rural communities where the company operates, it is awarding one winner who receives their first vaccine at the clinic with free beef, pork and chicken to feed a family of four for a year. Over half of Pilgrim’s Guntersville team members have been vaccinated to date.

“Receiving your Covid-19 vaccine is the first line of defense against the virus and an important step in bringing the pandemic to an end,” said Cliff Rule, Pilgrim’s Guntersville complex manager. “We invite all members of the Guntersville community to join us in rolling up a sleeve and doing their part to protect those around them.”

Pilgrim’s has promoted vaccination among its workforce of more than 31,000 U.S. 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. Pilgrim’s wants to help raise local community vaccination rates to help safeguard its hometowns across the country. 

The Pilgrim’s “Your Shot at Free Meat for a Year” sweepstakes campaign builds on the company’s Hometown Strong initiative, a $20 million investment in local communities where Pilgrim’s operates. Learn more here.
