May 21st, 2021 by WCBC Radio

Maryland Governor Larry Hogan announced Thursday that the state health department has partnered with Maryland Lottery to bring $2 million in prize money for lucky vaccinated Marylanders. The grand prize is $400,000. Hogan stated that the Maryland Lottery will randomly select one vaccinated Marylander every day for 40 days until July 3 for a $40,000 prize. On July 4, they will have a final drawing for a grand prize of $400,000. He said that anyone who has already gotten their vaccine will be automatically entered into the drawings. The governor says the hope is that this promotion will provide incentive for those who have been hesitating to get their vaccinations..
