Vaccinated Oregonians expected to be eligible for cash prizes from the lottery

SALEM, Ore. – The State of Oregon will offer cash prizes for people who get vaccinated against COVID-19.

On Friday, Governor Kate Brown announced the launch of “Take Your Shot Oregon Campaign.” The program will give vaccinated Oregonians 18 and older the chance to win $1 million or one of 36 $10,000 prizes with one winner in each county. Oregonians age 12 to 17 will have a chance to win one of five $100,000 Oregon College Savings Plan scholarships. All Oregonians who’ve received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine by June 27 are eligible.

“Vaccines are the best tool we have to protect ourselves and our loved ones from COVID-19, and our fastest way to end this pandemic,” said Governor Kate Brown. “The Take Your Shot Oregon Campaign is a way to thank Oregonians for stepping up and keeping our communities safe. It’s never been easier to get a vaccine, so don’t miss your shot to enter!”

The campaign is funded with $1.86 million in federal Coronavirus Relief Act dollars.

The Oregon Lottery will help draw names for the winners. The governor’s office said no identifying information will be shared with the Oregon Lottery.

The drawing will take place on June 28 and the winners will be publicly announced the following week.
