King Soopers and City Market offering their own COVID-19 vaccination sweepstakes

King Soopers and City Market, through their parent company Kroger, are inviting customers and employees to join their own take on a COVID-19 vaccination lottery.

Customers age 18 or older who receive at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine shot at a King Soopers or City Market location in Colorado between June 3 and July 10 or receive a shot from a Kroger-affiliated healthcare professional at an off-site event are eligible to enter the Kroger Community Immunity Giveaway.

So too are employees of the two grocery chains who receive a shot through the company or at a third-party location.

Kroger is giving away $1 million a week over the next five weeks through 18 of its subsidiaries participating in the giveaway.  Additionally, it will provide 50 winners free groceries for a year. In all, the Cincinnati company plans to distribute $5.65 million in prizes.

The easiest way for anyone eligible to participate is to fill out a form online at www.krogergiveaway.com.

Entries can also be submitted via mail. Just print your full name, mailing address, telephone number, email address, date of birth and the words “Kroger Community Immunity Giveaway” on a plain piece of 3″ x 5″ paper. Fold that sheet and mail it in a standard #10 envelope to: Kroger’s Community Immunity Giveaway, 211 Greenwood Ave. 2-2, Promo 511, Bethel, CT 06801.

Colorado launched a COVID-19 vaccination giveaway to residents who have received a shot, also with five prizes of $1 million each. It is estimated that residents of the state have received about 5.7 million doses and participation in the giveaway, which is designed to boost the number of people receiving a shot, is automatic.

A Colorado resident who obtains a shot this month at King Soopers would in theory be eligible to participate in both giveaways.  And if they have a sweet tooth, they can head over to Krispy Kreme, which is offering a free plain glazed doughnut, one a day for the rest of the year, to anyone who presents a vaccination card.
