Today is the last day for fully vaccinated Mass residents to sign up to win the first of five Massachusetts VaxMillions $1-million dollar prizes.  The major prize incentive was launched to encourage Mass residents 12+ to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

Yesterday Mass Gov. Charlie Baker sent a reminder through his Twitter account that today (July 22) “is the last day to get fully vaccinated, register and be eligible to win in all five #MassVaxMillions prize drawings”!

Any Massachusetts resident that is 18 and older and fully vaccinated can enter the drawings through the Mass Lottery to win $1 million bucks.  There will be five drawings over five weeks for the 1-million VaxMillions prize.  Once registered any qualified resident will be entered into the upcoming drawings.  In an effort to get the younger demo vaccinated, any Mass resident between the ages of 12 to 17 can enter one of five drawings to win a $300,000 scholarship grant.
