The winners of the first round of the “Vax-to-Win” lottery will be announced on Monday, August 16th.

Premier Brian Pallister says those who received their first COVID-19 vaccine dose by August 2nd will be entered to win up to $100,000 for eligible adults. Youth can win a $75 thousand scholarship.

“We’re so close to reaching all of our vaccination milestones, but to reach that Labour Day immunization milestone we set out in our 4-3-2-One plan, we need 25 thousand second dose vaccinations, and I’m confident we can reach that goal any day now.”

As of yesterday, 80 percent of eligible Manitobans had received one dose, and the province expects 75 percent with two doses within the next week.

Those who receive their second dose on or before September 6th will be entered into the second draw.
