STATEWIDE — The state of Maine is launching a new incentive to get residents vaccinated against COVID-19.
Gov. Janet mills announced the “Don’t Miss Your Shot: Vaccinationland Sweepstakes” Wednesday.
This will allow one vaccinated person to win $1 for every person in the state vaccinated by the Fourth of July.
She said any Maine resident who has received at least one dose of any COVID-19 vaccination in the state by June 30 is eligible to enter.
“Our nation-leading progress in beating back this pandemic and getting our state back to normal is because of the more than 876,000 people in Maine who have already rolled up their sleeves and gotten vaccinated,” Mills said. “We should celebrate this milestone, but let’s not stop there.”
Mills said the winner will be randomly selected on July 4 using a process that mirrors the Maine State Lottery.
