Governor Mike Parson announced an official total of 495-thousand-296 MO VIP entries for the first drawing on Friday. The MO VIP incentivizes vaccination for those who have not yet been vaccinated, as well as provides an opportunity for rewards for the more than 3 million Missourians who have already made the decision to be protected through vaccination.
Since the MO VIP launch on July 21st, the state’s vaccine dashboard at MOStopsCovid.com/data shows more than 300,000 doses have been administered. More than 180,000 individuals have initiated vaccination in the same time period.
Eighty winners have been randomly selected during Friday’s drawing from both the Red and White categories (10 from each congressional district). These individuals will each receive a cash prize of $10,000. In addition, 20 adolescents from the Blue category will be randomly selected to receive a $10,000 education savings account through the Missouri State Treasurer’s MOST 529 program. A total of 900 individuals will be rewarded through MO VIP through October. To allow time for records and eligibility to be verified, confirmed winners will be announced two weeks following each drawing.
