The state of Ohio to organize a weekly lottery with a prize of $1 million for those vaccinated against COVID-19

For teenagers aged 12 to 17 years, another lottery will be held, according to the results of which five students will be fully paid for their education at one of the state universities.

The authorities of the state of Ohio from the end of May to promote vaccination against coronavirus will hold a weekly lottery with a prize of $1 million among adults in the state who have been vaccinated. Ohio Governor Mike DeWine announced this on Wednesday.

“In two weeks, on May 26, we will choose the winner among adults who received at least one dose of the vaccine. Such announcements will take place every Wednesday for five weeks, and each winner will receive $1 million,” he said in a video message posted on the state administration’s official YouTube channel. It is noted that to participate in the drawing, you must be over 18 years old, live in Ohio, and receive at least one dose of the vaccine until the winner is identified.

For teenagers between the ages of 12 and 17, another lottery will be held on similar terms, according to the results of which five students will be fully paid by the authorities of Ohio to study at one of the state universities. It is noted that the costs of such initiatives will be paid for from the funds received by the state as part of the federal package of measures to stimulate the country’s economy in the context of the pandemic. According to Johns Hopkins University, more than 32.8 million cases of coronavirus infection have been detected in the United States since the beginning of the pandemic, and 583,647 people have died. The country ranks first in the world in both indicators. According to the university, 264.6 million vaccinations were made in the United States, while 117.6 million people received a full course of vaccination.
