    If you can eat popcorn chicken without any thought of what's in it, you can get a vaccine - KFC spokesperson said

  • Bugger. Didn't keep my vaccine card.

    • I never got given one.. when I asked them, they said its just a booking card

      • Oh true that's what I was given as well. Just the ol' booking card.

        • Had my second today and didn’t have the original card, so they filled out another one for me without asking

    • +3

      You can get proof of your vaccination here

      Although does say it takes up to 10 days so chicken might be gone by then!

      • Thanks, requested via email. Hopefully its quicker :x

      You can actually create an early access vaccine passport on which has your vaccination record

      • Never seen this! Amazing

      • Can you get the vaccination record thru managemyhealth?

        • No, govt one is My Health Account

    Not sure I want to eat my KFC made at 2pm the day before? 🤔

  • Just what we need, more queues at KFC - the line is already out and blocking up the road, let alone freebies.

  • LOL

  • I know free is free but I don't think i'd queue up for a little popcorn chicken lol good on them for doing this though

  • I cackled at this. great stuff

      Bribery as in a private company piggybacking off of a trending topic for cheap exposure/marketing?

    • +6

      Pretty sure I saw Jacinda meeting with the Colonel last week

  • Just FYI the drive-thru queues may become so long that you waste more in petrol (and time) than this thing will cost.

    • especially since the fuel price has increased to $2.5/L today for 91

  • The price is $5.99 if it helps to decide that it's worth the effort or not.
    You get Popcorn Chicken pieces and regular chips

    • Yikes!, pretty sure theyre like $3.90 here. is that an auckland tax?

  • +1

    Imagine if everyone got the KFConsole for free instead

  • Don't think KFC were ready for this…. two of us, both vaccinated, drive through, staff didn't know if we could order 2.

    In the end, they said yes, and didn't even ask to see vaccination cards.

      A nice gesture, but I value my time far too much to be sitting in a drive thru queue for hours.

      • +1

        i would hate to be in that queue only to be told its sold out.

    • I don't have no car for none of these offers

      • I visited a KFC on Wednesday & it was 1 person in the store at a time, no line so try your luck.

      Took about 35-40 minutes Otahuhu KFC. They didn't ask to see our vaccine cards. Popcorn chicken boxes were pretty empty.

      • +1

        works both ways, you didn't ask to see the box!

        • Lol very true. Not a bad lazy Saturday deal for lunch combined with a zinger burger.

          • @Ephixaa: i hope you used the survey code too for free chips and drink!

  • Seems KFC Lincoln Road didn't want to participate "Store is closed for refurbishment will be reopening 5th November 2021" 😜
