Illinois Officials Hoping for More Vaccinations With Lottery

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (IOCI RADIO) – Illinois officials are hopeful the new lottery promotion will prompt more people to get the COVID-19 vaccine.

“All in for the Win” includes cash prizes for adults and college scholarships for teens who have gotten their shots. Speaking last week, Illinois Public Health Director Dr. Ngozi Ezike said reasons for not getting vaccinated vary.

 

Those who have received at least one dose are automatically entered to win and entries will be updated as new people get vaccinated. The first drawing will be July 8.
