LAKELAND, Fla. — Publix is offering a free $125 Publix gift card to its associates who complete the full COVID-19 vaccination, the company said Friday.
To receive the gift card, associates must be currently employed, submit an internal form and proof of vaccination. Although not required, the company is encouraging its associates to get the vaccine. Associates do not have to be vaccinated at a Publix pharmacy to receive the gift card.
“We care about our associates and customers and believe getting vaccinated can help us take one step closer to getting back to normal,” Publix CEO Todd Jones said. “We’re encouraging our associates to get vaccinated when they become eligible and doses are available.”
