Ohio: nearly 2.8 million sign up for Vax-a-Million lottery
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) _ Ohio’s governor says nearly 2.8 million residents have registered for Ohio’s Vax-a-Million vaccination incentive prize ahead of Wednesday’s drawing.
Gov. Mike DeWine says vaccinations have surged across demographic groups since he announced the incentive program.
The lottery provides five $1 million prizes to adults and five full-ride college scholarships to children. Winners will be announced Wednesday.
DeWine announced the incentive program May 12 as a way of building enthusiasm for the slowing COVID-19 vaccination effort.
