Winner selected in July 3 drawing
An anonymous Montgomery County woman is the latest winner to claim a $40,000 prize in the $2 Million VaxCash Promotion. The lucky Gaithersburg resident was selected in the final $40,000 drawing on July 3.
The VaxCash Promotion, announced by Governor Larry Hogan on May 20, was a collaboration of the Maryland Lottery and the Maryland Department of Health, aimed at incentivizing Marylanders who had not yet received their COVID-19 vaccinations while rewarding those who had. All Maryland residents 18 and older who had received a COVID-19 shot at a non-Federal facility in Maryland at any time were automatically entered into daily drawings held from May 25 through July 4. Beginning with the June 27 drawing, any Maryland resident 18 or older who was vaccinated at a Veterans Affairs (VA) facility located in Maryland was also eligible.
Each day through July 3, one winner was awarded a $40,000 prize, and the promotion concluded on the Fourth of July when a Baltimore City resident won a $400,000 prize.
