Oregon residents who have at least one dose of a COVID-19 will be eligible to win a $1 million jackpot.
Oregon Governor Kate Brown announced the state’s “Take Your Shot, Oregon” lottery campaign during a news conference on Friday.
Residents ages 18 and up will have a chance to win the $1 million cash prize by getting at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, and one person from each of the state’s 36 counties will win $10,000.
Residents ages 12 to 17 will be entered in a separate drawing where five winners will each receive $100,000 college savings scholarships.
“Getting vaccinated not only protects you from COVID-19, it helps protect your loved ones,” Brown told reporters Friday. “It takes us one step closer to unlocking the restrictions during the pandemic.”
“And in Oregon, it now gives you a chance to win $1 million,” the Oregon governor continued. “That sounds pretty good.”
