Ohio State: Vaccination as a lottery ticket - a million in the jackpot every week

Columbus –

Get vaccinated and you have a chance of a million dollars! No joke, the US state of Ohio is starting a lottery for citizens with at least one corona vaccination.

  • The US state of Ohio rewards those who want to be vaccinated
  • There is a million dollars in the jackpot weekly
  • Anyone who has been vaccinated at least once can participate

Governor Mike DeWine announced on Wednesday (May 12, local time) on Twitter that one million dollars (around 820,000 euros) would be raffled off among all citizens with a corona vaccination.

The lottery, which should last a total of five weeks, is open to people aged 18 and over who have received at least their first dose of a vaccine against the coronavirus.

“I know some will say, ‘DeWine, you are crazy! This million dollar idea of ​​yours is a waste of money, ‘”the governor wrote on Twitter.

The actual waste at this point in the pandemic, where vaccines are available to everyone, is the loss of another human life due to a corona infection.

Vaccinated people under the age of 18 have the chance of a four-year scholarship at the university

Ohio has also launched a lottery for people under the age of 18. The prize is a four-year scholarship for a state university. In the US, where higher education is disproportionately expensive, this is considered a very attractive price. The FDA approved the approval of the vaccine from Biontech and Pfizer on Monday for young people between the ages of twelve and 15.

There are currently fewer and fewer vaccinations in the USA

The number of daily doses of vaccine in the United States is currently declining. So far, almost 60 percent of adults have received at least one dose. However, many who have not yet been vaccinated continue to hesitate. The authorities across the country are therefore advertising with various incentives – in the hope of persuading the undecided to get a vaccination with free beer, donuts or tickets for sporting events.
