California Residents Eligible to Win Millions in Prizes, Gift Cards for Getting Vaccinated

Posted By on Thu, May 27, 2021 at 2:46 PM

California officials today announced a new incentive program to get residents vaccinated — the chance for those 12 and up who have received at least one dose to win a grand prize of $1.5 million or cash prizes of $50,000.

Ten winners will be selected on June 15 to receive $1.5 million each for a grand total of $15 million, the largest offering of any state to date. Two other drawings for $50,000 will take place June 4 and June 11, with a total of 30 winners.

Those who have received a shot will be automatically entered to win, according to the state’s COVID website. (Click here for a rundown on how it will work.)

For those not yet vaccinated, there's still time to get in the prize pool and also become eligible for a $50 gift card prize for getting the shot. Starting today, the first 2 million Californians residents “to start and complete” their COVID-19 vaccination are eligible to receive one of the following:

  • A $50 virtual card (which can be spent online, in-store where major debit cards are accepted, or added to a mobile wallet to be used to shop in-stores that accept mobile wallets),
  • Or a $50 grocery gift card from Kroger (which includes Ralphs, Food 4 Less and Foods Co.),
  • Or a $50 grocery gift card from Albertsons (which includes Safeway, Albertsons, Vons, Pavilions and Andronico’s Community Markets).
