The state of Ohio, USA, announced the winners of the first lottery draw among those who had the Covid-19 vaccine. Abbigail Bugenske, who lives in a suburb of Cincinnati, received the state’s first $ 1 million (approximately 8.4 million lira) “Vax-a-Million” award.
A young man named Joseph Costello from the Dayton area won a four-year college scholarship offered under the same incentive program. The lottery was launched this month to speed up vaccination efforts in the state.
WILL CONTINUE FOR FOUR WEEKS
However, as part of the program, $ 1 million and four more college scholarship winners will be announced every Wednesday over the next four weeks.
THE NUMBER OF VACCINATED PEOPLE HAS INCREASED BIG IN EVERY AGE GROUP
The lottery “Vax-a-Million” was launched on May 12 by Ohio Governor Mike DeWine, a Republican. DeWine’s office said, “In the period from May 14 to May 19 compared to May 7 to May 12, the number of vaccinated people was 94 percent among 16 and 17-year-olds, with 46 and 20 percent among 18 and 19-year-olds. 55 percent increased among those between the ages of 49 ”used expressions.
On the other hand, while the White House praised Ohio’s initiative, not everyone in the state approved of the lottery. Democrat Emilia Strong Sykes, the top legislator in the state of Ohio, described the draw as “a serious misuse of money that could be used in the ongoing Covid-19 crisis”. With this, the vaccine incentive lottery spread to New York, Maryland, Oregon, and Colorado.
1 MILLION DOLLAR VACCINE
The Covid-19 lottery, which has been heard all over the world, revitalized the vaccination initiative in the USA. Many local media outlets and radio stations reminded residents to take their pictures and sign up for the lottery. More than 2.7 million people enrolled in one of the Ohio state universities for a four-year full scholarship to win the $ 1 million prize in the draw, and 100,000 geN for a four-year full scholarship.
