MD COVID: $1M Prize Left In Booster Shot Lottery

You still have a chance to win $1 million courtesy of the state of Maryland but you only have until today to be in consideration. I’m talking about  VaxCash 2.0, the last million dollar prize offered by the state for those Maryland residents who have received their covid booster shot.
Governor Hogan said in a news release said “Getting fully protected with a booster shot continues to be the single most important thing you can do to minimize the impact of COVID-19 and its variants, and “If you haven’t gotten around to it yet, getting boosted this week gives you a chance to enter our grand prize drawing.”

As for eligibility, you must be a Maryland resident, at least 18 years old, and you must have received an initial dose and booster dose of a COVID-19 vaccine at non-federal facilities in Maryland.
Here is an interesting fact from one national survey, Maryland was ranked as the safest state during the COVID-19 pandemic.
That’s good to hear.
