New details on how the drawing works
COLUMBUS, Ohio (WJW) – The Ohio Department of Health has said millions of vaccinated people in Ohio have already signed up for a chance to win a million dollars, or a full scholarship at Ohio State University for Children.
The registration deadline for the first of five weekly draws is today at 11:59 p.m.
Over 5.1 million Ohioans have started the vaccination process, but not all are eligible. The Ohio Vax-a-Million is an opt-in program, which means you are not automatically enrolled.
ODH says it takes less than two minutes to enter online or you can also enter by phone at 1-833-4-ASK-ODH (1-833-427-5634).
Each entry will carry over to all drawings, so you don’t need to submit your name every week.
Any winner will be removed from the list of eligible draws for subsequent draws and vaccination records will be verified for the winners.
Ohio residents who have been vaccinated in another state are eligible, but will be required to present a vaccination pouf.
The Ohio Lottery will use a random number generator for the drawing, shown in the video below.
Starting this Wednesday, May 26 at around 7:29 p.m., the winners will be announced for five weeks. The final announcement will take place on Wednesday 23 June.
