Louisiana Announces $1 Million Vaccine Lottery
LA VACCINE INCENTIVES - Governor John Bel Edwards of Louisiana’s weekly press conference in Baton Rouge opened with much fanfare yesterday, setting the stage for a special announcement of an new incentive program called: “Shot at a Million” , The program’s aim is to get more people vaccinated in Louisiana as less than 34% of the state’s population has been fully vaccinated. Louisiana is ranked near the bottom among the states with the lowest coronavirus vaccine rate; currently it is 47th. The democratic governor explained the incentive is part of the “Bring Back Louisiana” campaign.
"The way this is going to work is 14 lucky Louisianians with at least one Covid-19 shot will win cash prizes or scholarships throughout the month of July culminating with a grand prize of $1 million dollars", Edwards said.
