Pilgrim’s Moorefield 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 E.A. Hawse Health Center and Hardy, Grant and Pendleton County Health Departments, the clinic will be held on Aug. 4 and 5 from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Tri County Fair (107 Rig St., Petersburg).

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. Everyone receiving a vaccine will also receive free chicken product at the clinic. Nearly 83% of Pilgrim’s Moorefield team members have been vaccinated to date.

“The Covid-19 pandemic is not over, and it is increasingly important to protect yourself and others by receiving the Covid-19 vaccine,” said Allen Collins, Pilgrim’s Morefield complex manager. “We invite everyone in the tri-county area to come out and do your part with the added bonus of entering to win free meat for a year.”

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.
