- Winner Announcement set for Wednesday at 7:29 p.m.
- More than 5.1 million Ohioans have started the vaccination process
The Ohio Lottery conducted the first of five Ohio Vax-a-Million drawings at the Ohio Lottery’s draw studio in Cleveland, Ohio with 2,758,470 adult entries in the drawing for $1 million, and 104,386 Ohioans aged 12 to 17 entered the drawing for a college scholarship.
In an effort to increase the number of Ohioans who currently have not taken a COVID-19 vaccine to get vaccinated, Governor Mike DeWine announced a series of statewide drawings to help incentivize vaccinations.
The drawing was conducted using a Random Number Generator and observed by a representative of the Ohio Auditor of State. Take a look at the process at https://youtu.be/1VWvj3KV8wU.
Results of the drawing were provided to the Ohio Department of Health to verify the winners ahead of the Wednesday, May 26, 2021, winner announcement at 7:29 p.m.
Broadcast stations across the state will be provided with coordinates to air the winner announcement statewide.
