New Mexico has introduced a COVID-19 vaccine lottery to encourage residents to get their shots. In New Mexico, the Vax-2-The-Max program will also be giving away free park passes, travel vouchers, staycations, museum passes, and other prizes. Those who are interested must opt-in to win.
The state has announced they will conduct five regional lotteries where one winner from each region will be selected to win $250,000. The regional drawings will occur for five weeks, beginning on June 18.
After the regional drawings are completed, there will be one statewide drawing where one winner will be awarded the $5 million grand prize.
How to Win?
