JBS to offer five pounds of meat to people who receive vaccine on Saturday

FILE JBS Hyrum is offering five pounds of hamburger to anyone ho gets their first COVID-19 vaccine shot on Saturday.

HYRUM – JBS Hyrum will hold two free COVID-19 vaccine clinics and give away meat for a year to two lucky winners (one per clinic). JBS is working with the Bear River Health Department on the clinics. The clinics will be held on Saturday, Aug. 7 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Aug. 9 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the health department located at 655 E. 1300 N., in Logan.

They Hyrum JBS plant employs 1,300 people to run their beef processing facility.

JBS USA is holding the COVID-19 shot clinics as part of their mission to vaccinate Americans in the rural communities where the company operates. To motivate people to participate, the meat packing company will award one winner free beef, pork and poultry to feed a family of four for a year at each clinic who receives their first vaccine.

JBS will give five pounds of ground beef to everyone who receives a vaccine at the two clinics. Nearly 60 percent of JBS Hyrum team members have already been vaccinated to date.

“Every COVID-19 vaccine received will help keep our team members and our community safe and healthy,” said Darren Olsen, JBS Hyrum plant manager. “This sweepstakes is a great incentive to encourage everyone to come out and do their part to help put an end to the pandemic.”

JBS USA has promoted vaccination among its workforce of more than 66,000 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. As a result of these efforts, nearly 70% of its U.S. workforce has been vaccinated.

JBS in Hyrum processes nearly one-half million cattle per year.

The company claims the vaccination rate of JBS team members is two to three times higher than vaccination rates of surrounding community members. JBS USA wants to help change this dynamic and raise local community vaccination rates to help safeguard its hometowns across the country.

The JBS USA “Your Shot at Free Meat for a Year” sweepstakes campaign builds on the company’s Hometown Strong initiative, which is contributing more than $70 million to support its local communities across the country during the pandemic.

    um.. why would you get a shot, that isn’t really a vaccine and doesn’t protect you from an illness that has been blown completely out of proportion to what it really is.. that a straight up no for me..

      Have you had any family or close friends die from Covid? I wasn’t sure about the shot either, but once a very close family friend, refused to get vaccinated and died from Covid, I decided to get over myself and get vaccinated. This family friends was a very fit and healthy individual, who had no underlying conditions. Covid killed her. Plain and simple.

      Ummmm it is a vaccine, and it protects you from severe illness. COVID-19 is a mucosal virus, similar to other respiratory diseases, which makes mitigating the severity of the illness relatively straightforward, but also makes it nearly impossible to completely eliminate the ability to contract the disease. But you already knew that because you’re clearly so well-informed on this disease, way more informed than every single epidemiologist in the entire world.

    Heya unvaccinated folks! If you want to move on from masks, distancing, 2020, lockdowns, travel restrictions we are going to need to step up. Don’t be scared, the vaccine is doing what it’s supposed to do, but it won’t matter if we let COV-2 hang around long enough to produce more variants. Sooner or later one will send us back to square one. We all understand that if you are young and healthy covid isn’t a huge deal. But at this point the majority of us know someone who has died from the disease. Of course the majority also had other health issues, but that’s a pretty poor justification to avoid the vaccine. If you are listening or absorbing anti vax content then I suggest you put that to the side and start getting better sources.

    Pretty sad that this company who started the pandemic, is giving away the COVID-infested meat in case someone wants more COVID? I don’t get it. Then again I have not stuck a dead animal in my face since the Sighties. Meat eating is the new smoking! Watching meat eaters, is like watching children play with matches!!
