Have you been vaccinated yet? If not, then you might be eligible for the Shot at a Million campaign happening this month! This project is offering cash and scholarships to those who are 18 years of age or older after receiving one dose.
The Shot At A Million campaign aims to make immunization more accessible for all by awarding cash and scholarships with the opportunity of winning a million dollars.
In support of National Immunizations Awareness Month, Edwards announced 14 people in the state who have received at least one vaccine dose will win cash and scholarships as part of their initiative throughout July."
“It’s time to take your Shot At A Million, Louisiana. Any resident who has taken at least one COVID vaccine dose can register to win life-changing cash and scholarship prizes. Get your first shot by July 31 and you could be our grand prize winner,” said Edwards. “Getting your COVID vaccine is already a huge win for Louisianans because they can safely take off their masks, be around other people and know that they are protected from serious COVID-19 infections, hospitalization and death.”
“This is a once-in-a-century event and we find ourselves at a pivotal point. Shot At A Million is bold and creative - and we’ll need more unconventional ideas like this to end this pandemic. Because when lives are on the line, you do whatever it takes,” said Dr. Joseph Kanter, State Health Officer. “The circulation of the COVID variants of concern, especially the fast-spreading Delta variant, adds further urgency to our vaccine campaign. What we do now will in part dictate what our fall looks like.”
“Cash for college is always a reason to celebrate,” said Commissioner of Higher Education Kim Hunter Reed. “This is an exciting opportunity for students to get vaccinated against COVID-19 and the lagniappe is more than a little something extra. These scholarships will help our future students advance their education at a two-year or four-year college or university or through an apprenticeship program.”
Louisianans who have taken at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine and are age 18 or older may enter to win one of four $100,000 prizes. Louisianans between 12 and 17 years old can also enter for a chance to win nine scholarships worth $100,000 each.
