It will be at least two weeks before the state announces the winners in the first drawing for the state vaccine incentives program.
495-thousand vaccinated Missourians were included in the first drawing – Friday – that picked 80 adults to win 10-thousand dollars and 20 youth to get a 10-thousand dollar college education savings account with the state’s 529 investment plan.
Robert Knodell is acting state health director.
The state lottery is helping to oversee the vaccine rewards lottery- called MO VIP.
Knodell says there is a backup process to ensure they have legitimate entries.
All prior entries that did not win in the first drawing will be rolled over into the next drawing. You only need to enter once.
