Vax for the Win*If you live in Cali and missed the news, here it is. On Thursday, California launched a $116.5 million lottery to incentivize residents to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

With this move, the USA’s largest and wealthiest state joins a slew of others offering cash prizes to residents to encourage them to get the vaccine.

California’s governor, Gov. Gavin Newsom dubbed the program, “Vax for the Win.”  With the announcement, the Golden State is now offering the largest jackpot out of all states that have employed such a program.

“It’s our biggest ‘thank you’ yet to Californians who have received their COVID-19 vaccine,” the program’s website reads.
