One million dollars could be yours, but only if you have been vaccinated. “Your shot of hope can now be your shot at a million.” Governor Andy Beshear announced new incentives to encourage more Kentuckians to get their COVID-19 vaccine.
Every Kentuckian who has gotten the Johnson and Johnson vaccine or at least their first dose of Pfizer of Moderna will be eligible for three separate million-dollar drawings. And those between the ages of 12-17 who have been or get vaccinated will have a chance to win one of 15 full-ride scholarships to a public college, university, technical or trade school in Kentucky. Beshear called the incentives life-changing. “All you’ve got to do is the right thing. Get protected from a terrible virus,” Beshear said “Help us defeat COVID-19. Help us reach herd immunity and maybe just maybe end up with a million dollars or a free education.”
Beshear said he hopes the ‘Shot at a Million’ program creates a "significant" jump in Kentucky vaccination rates, especially among young people. More than 46% of Kentuckians have been vaccinated
The drawings will be held on June 30th, July 28th, and August 25th. To register for your chance to win, log on to http://shotatamillion.ky.gov
