Ohio pays vaccinations for its residents and the stakes are just high, get a vaccine in Ohio and you could be a millionaire.
Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine announced entering a million-dollar lottery as an incentive for vaccination in his state, according to NBC News. The lottery is open to adults only, however, any teenager (ages 12-17) who is vaccinated will be entered into a separate lottery to receive a full scholarship.
Only people who get the vaccine are eligible to win the million-dollar bag, which will be paid for with federal funds for the coronavirus, DeWine, a Republican, said.
“To be eligible to win, you must be at least 18 years of age or older on the day of the draw. You must be a resident of Ohio. You must be vaccinated before drawing,” Dewan said.
“Two weeks after tonight on May 26, we will announce a winner in a separate drawing for adults who have received at least their first dose of the vaccine. This announcement will be made every Wednesday for five weeks, and every Wednesday the winner will get a million dollars.”
DeWine acknowledged that this new incentive may face criticism because some people may see it as a waste of money, but he disagrees.
I know some might say, ‘Dwyane, you’re crazy! This million dollar fee idea is a waste of money. But in fact, the real waste at this point in the pandemic – when a vaccine is readily available to anyone who wants it – is life lost due to COVID-19.
Regarding the teen withdrawal, vaccinated teens will be entered into the raffle “for a full four-year scholarship for any of Ohio’s colleges and universities, including full tuition, room and board,” DeWine announced.
This important announcement came with more news. DeWine also said he had asked the Ohio Department of Health to lift most health orders related to the pandemic on June 2.
It is time to finish the health orders. A year has passed. I have followed the protocols. You did what we asked for. Dwyane said in a statement: I have fought this virus with courage.
