CLEVELAND — Editor’s note: Video in the player above features the second Vax-a-Million winner who was revealed last week.
Feeling lucky? Ohio is set to announce the third Vax-a-Million winners in the state’s COVID vaccine lottery. The winning names, which will be revealed at 7:29 p.m. tonight, include the next $1 million winner (drawing for those 18 and older) along with the recipient of a full-ride college scholarship (drawing for those ages 12-17).
You can watch the drawing live here on WKYC.com or streaming on our Facebook and YouTube pages. We will also post both winning names on WKYC.com after the drawing is complete.

The state’s Vax-a-Million contest continues weekly now through June 23. You can enter to win HERE.
Here’s how the drawing works: Each person who enters is assigned a unique number. A computer then randomly picks one of those numbers approximately 48 hours before the winning name is announced. The reason the drawing isn’t held live is so state officials have time to verify the winner’s information — including proof of vaccination — before revealing the results.

To be eligible, you must have received at least one dose of a COVID vaccine. If you’ve already entered the contest, there’s no need to enter again. Your single entry is valid for the two remaining drawings with the upcoming winners to be revealed at 7:29 p.m. on the following Wednesday nights:
- June 16 (deadline to enter is Sunday, June 13 at 11:59 p.m.)
- June 23 (deadline to enter is Sunday, June 20 at 11:59 p.m.)
Gov. DeWine launched the Vax-a-Million COVID vaccine lottery last month as a way to give Ohioans an incentive for vaccinations.
