There have already been a few $50,000 winners already and many more to come. With 2 million dollars up for grabs you have to be crazy not to enter because the odds are much better than a normal lottery ticket from a gas station.

WOOD has reported that as of July 9, 1.4 million people of the 4 million vaccinated have entered the sweepstakes.

The whole point of the vaccine lottery is to encourage those who have not gotten their vaccine yet but the state is not leaving you out if you got yours early and before there ever was a sweepstakes.

The state probably should have launched the program before or after the July 4th weekend so more people would notice this is going on. Holiday weekends can be huge distractions for people.

So far on the vaccination rate since the announce of the lottery has only increased less that 1% of those who have not been vaccinated. So if you know people who are vaccinated or about to get vaccinated make sure and spread the word.

The prize money are for residents of Michigan who are 18 or older who have at least had their first shot of the vaccine. If you have kids that are 12 to 17 they can sign up to win scholarships but a parent has to register kids under 18.
