California Announces Covid-19 Vaccination Prizes

Vaccination Prizes

Starting June 4, California will be holding a contest to encourage COVID vaccinations throughout the state, with prizes totaling $15 million, and a grand prize of $1.5 million.  All you have to do to enter is either already be vaccinated against COVID-19, or go get your vaccination, and you will automatically be entered. 

Everyone with at least one COVID-19 vaccination dose in the state of California will be automatically entered to win big on $50,000 Fridays. Thirty winners will take home $50,000, with the first fifteen people announced on Friday, June 4, and then another fifteen will win on Friday, June 11.  On June 15, ten winners will be selected to receive $1.5 million each.  All Californians who have had at least one COVID-19 vaccine dose will automatically be entered. 

You’re eligible if you:

  • Live in California
  • Are aged 12 and older
  • Have received at least a first dose of your COVID-19 vaccine

All providers administering COVID-19 vaccines in California are required to report administered doses to the state, except certain federal facilities.  If you received your vaccine from a reporting site, you have been automatically entered.

Not yet vaccinated?  The first two million Californians to start and complete their COVID-19 vaccination series after May 27 will receive:

  • A $50 virtual gift card
  • Or a $50 grocery gift card from Kroger
  • Or a $50 grocery gift card from Albertsons. Available while supplies last

You’re eligible to receive a $50 card if you:

  • Live in California
  • Are aged 12 and older
  • And get vaccinated starting on or after May 27. You will also be entered to win in the cash drawings
