Ohio has currently begun the vaccination process for more than 5 million residents, and more than 3.2 million Ohioans were entered into the ‘Vax-a-Million’ $1 million lottery for this week.
“I am pleased that leading into the holiday weekend, data continued to show that our Ohio Vax-a-Million promotion continued to increase COVID-19 vaccinations compared to the period before the promotion announcement,” said Ohio Governor Mike DeWine in a recent statement. “The vaccine remains our most powerful tool to fight the virus and for Ohioans to protect themselves and others. I encourage anyone considering getting the vaccine to not delay and take advantage of both vaccination opportunities and the Ohio Vax-a-Million promotion.”
The entry period for the next Ohio Vax-a-Million drawing ends June 6, 2021 at 11:59 p.m. and the drawing will take place on Wednesday, June 9, at 7:29 p.m.
