State Health Officials Hope New Lottery Promotion Will Get More People Vaccinated

Illinois’ top health official believes that the new lottery promotion will convince more people to get the COVID-19 vaccine. Public Health Director Doctor Ngozi Ezike says reasons for not getting the shot vary. The All in for the Win game includes cash prizes for adults and scholarships for teens who have received the vaccine. Those who have received at least one dose are automatically entered to win, and entries will be updated as new people get vaccinated. The first drawing is set for July 8.
