Today Gov. Jay Inslee announced the “Shot of a Lifetime” lottery incentive with over $2 million in prizes to be awarded to Washingtonians who have received at least their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.

The State Lottery will conduct one drawing for $250,000 every week for four weeks beginning June 8. At the end of the four weeks, there will be an additional, final drawing for a $1 million prize on July 13. No entry is required. The Lottery will automatically gather names from the Department of Health’s database.

Other incentives include: Higher education tuition and expense assistance; Sports tickets and gear; Gift cards; Airline tickets; Game systems; and smart speakers. In addition the Department of Commerce is partnering with businesses, retailers and local chambers to purchase $1 million of gift cards to local stores.

Approximately 63% of those 16 and older have been vaccinated so far, and the state will fully reopen when that reaches 70% or by June 30, whichever comes first.
