Maryland will have a new booster action plan to get more residents fully protected from COVID-19 and its variants. The plan includes a $2 million “VaxCash 2.0 Promotion” that will award cash prizes to a total of 12 Maryland residents who have received their booster shot. The promotion kicks off Tuesday, Feb. 15, with a special initial drawing of $500,000.
After the initial $500,000 drawing on Feb. 15, prizes of $50,000 will be awarded weekly for the following 10 weeks. On Tuesday, May 3, one Marylander will be awarded a grand prize of $1 million.
Maryland residents 18 and older who have received their primary COVID-19 vaccinations and their booster shot in Maryland at any time are eligible to win. No registration or entry is needed.
In addition to the VaxCash 2.0 promotion, the new booster action plan also includes:
- Expanding call- and text-based outreach to all Marylanders who are eligible for boosters through the State’s GoVAX campaign.
- Offering booster shots at many hospital-based testing sites in addition to the 539 pharmacies and clinics across the State that currently offer boosters.
- Expanding the mission of the Vaccine Equity Task Force to offer clinics with community partners that are focused on booster shots.
