Like any good child of the Triad, I love Krispy Kreme. The Winston-Salem brand may be international, but there’s something about a warm glazed doughnut and a paper chef hat that really fill the soul. So when the company announced it’s giving away free doughnuts to folks who show up with their COVID-19 vaccine card, I was elated (even though others, like the former president of Planned Parenthood, were not). 

Maybe you just want to know where your nearest Krispy Kreme is. Maybe you want to rig the system and get as many as possible in a day with your handy vaccine card. It’s your prerogative. To help you map out your glazed gathering, here are the Triangle’s Krispy Kreme locations.
