McDonald's will redesign its coffee cups to promote Covid-19 vaccine and assist White House push to get more people vaccinated

 The push to get Americans vaccinated will soon extend to morning coffees as McDonald's partners with the White House to get more people vaccinated.  

The White House teamed up with McDonald's to redesign McCafe cups to include stickers that will feature the 'We Can Do This' slogan created by the federal Department of Health and Human Services to promote the vaccine. 

It will also include a website address that directs people to nearby appointments and safety information. 

The promotion is expected to start in July and last last several weeks, according to CNN. The slogan will be printed on roughly 50 million cups.

The announcement comes on the heels of the White House's partnership with Lyft and Uber which will offer free rides to anyone going to a vaccination site to get vaccinated.

'We all want to protect ourselves and our loved ones and be together with our communities again,' said Genna Gent, McDonald's USA vice president for global public policy and government relations, in a statement. 'McDonald's is excited to be doing our part for the people we serve, providing them with simple information that can help keep them safe.' 

Gent told Fox Business that the partnership effort will reach nearly 14,000 communities. 

Over the weekend, the latest seven-day average of vaccines administered in the United States dipped below two million per day for the first time since March 2, a sign of the continued decline in demand for coronavirus immunizations, according to the CDC. 


Currently, about 113 million people, or at least a third of the population, have been fully vaccinated, according to the CDC, and about 45.6 per cent of the population, or 151 million people, have received at least one dose of a vaccine. 

While those numbers appear promising, experts like Dr. Anthony Fauci have estimated 70 to 85 per cent of the population needs to be immune for America to reach 'herd immunity.' 

This public-private partnership to get vaccinated is part of an ongoing trend that includes businesses at the local level to mega-corporations like McDonald's. 

There's also been a promotion run by a micro-brewery in Buffalo, which has been offering free beer to encourage vaccine-hesitant customers to visit pop-up vaccination clinics next to its taprooms, which has been successful so far, The Guardian reported. 

 A Kaiser Family Foundation survey found 47 per cent of people who say they want to 'wait and see' before being vaccinated said paid time off to get it would make them more likely to do so, and 39 per cent  said a financial incentive of $200 from their employer would work.
