August 18 is Last Day to Get Vaccinated and Automatically Entered for Million-Dollar Top Prizes
76% of Adults Vaccinated as 7-Day Average Continues to Grow
As the state’s ‘All In for the Win’ vaccine lottery enters its final stretch, twenty two lucky winners have been chosen from each of the state’s eleven health regions.
The Illinois Department of Public Health notified winners by phone or email yesterday. The winners of the August 12th drawing come from every region of Illinois:
Illinoisans from those cities and counties should keep their phones on and check their emails regularly to find out if they’ve won. IDPH will call from 312-814-3524 and or email from [email protected]. No personal information will be requested in the initial phone or email notification. Winners will have seven days to securely complete, sign and send the authorization form to IDPH to accept their prizes. The Illinois Lottery will then guide winners through the claims process. Winners will be announced eight days after each draw unless they choose to remain anonymous.
Illinois has continued to see week-over-week growth in its vaccination rate. Over the last seven days, an average of 30,700 people got their life-saving shot. The seven days prior, 25,000 people got vaccinated, and seven days before that, 21,800 people on average received a dose of the vaccine. As of yesterday, 76 percent of Illinois adults have been vaccinated, and 56 percent of children age 12 to 17 have gotten protected from COVID-19 with the vaccine – continuing Illinois’ progress as the vaccination leader of the Midwest.
The last day to get your life-saving shot for a life-changing win is August 18, when IDPH will take the final tally of vaccinated residents and automatically enter them into lotteries for two $1 million cash prizes for adults and 17 scholarships for kids.
