By National Review. West Virginia will give away guns, trucks and cash to incentivize state residents to get vaccinated against COVID-19, Governor Jim Justice announced Tuesday.
Drawings for a new vaccine incentive lottery program will run from Father’s Day on June 20 to August 4. During the first drawing on Father’s Day, the state plans to give away five custom hunting rifles and five custom hunting shotguns.
Justice said West Virginia will also give out two brand-new custom outfitted trucks and five lifetime hunting and fishing licenses. Vaccinated residents stand to win one of 25 getaways to the state’s parks.
The initial drawing will also include two four-year scholarships to any state educational institution for winners between the ages of 12 and 25. The state will also give away a $1 million grand prize. (Read more from “West Virginia To Give Away Guns as Vaccine Lottery Prizes” HERE)
California To Offer $116.5M in Vaccine Prize Money; Ohio Woman Claims State’s First $1m Vaccine Jackpot
By Yahoo News. California is hopping on the trend of cash prizes for vaccinated individuals in hopes that the incentive will stimulate its plateauing vaccination rate.
Gov. Gavin Newsom announced Thursday that the state is offering the nation’s largest vaccine prize money — $116.5 million — to get millions more inoculated before the state’s reopening next month.
“This is all in an effort to incentivize and build momentum,” Newsom said.
Ten vaccinated residents 12 years and older will have the chance to win $1.5 million dollars apiece, and another 30 will win $50,000 each on June 4 and June 11. Anyone 12 and older who has received at least one shot will be eligible, even if they have already received their shot.
The state is also giving $50 grocery or prepaid gift cards to the next 2 million Californians who begin and complete their vaccination, starting Thursday. (Read more from “California To Offer $116.5M in Vaccine Prize Money; Ohio Woman Claims State’s First $1m Vaccine Jackpot” HERE)
