In support of the White House's National Month of Action, Panera Bread is offering a free bagel daily from July 2-4 at participating bakery-cafes to anyone who has chosen to get the COVID-19 vaccine. This includes all bagel flavors, from Plain, Sesame and Everything to Chocolate Chip and Cinnamon Swirl.
“During the past year, we have focused on uniting and serving our entire Panera family; our guests, associates. and communities. Today, we are proud to continue our work through support of the ‘We Can Do This’ campaign,” says Niren Chaudhary, chief executive officer of Panera Bread. “We have come through one of our nation’s greatest crises by supporting one another, and now, together, we can all take a simple act that will help our communities overcome this pandemic.”
In June, President Joe Biden announced the National Month of Action for COVID-19 vaccinations to mobilize national organizations, community-based and faith-based partners, businesses, social media influencers, celebrities, athletes, colleges, young people and thousands of volunteers. The goal is to get of as many US adults as possible at least one shot by the July 4th weekend.
Among the initiatives for the month of action are business incentives for vaccinated Americans, free child care for individuals getting the vaccine, extended hours at pharmacies across the country, community events and much more.
