California vaccine lottery: 5 more Bay Area residents win $50K

California

SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — The Bay Area had several more wins in the second drawing day for California’s ‘Vax for the Win’ lottery.

The state is giving out $50,000 to a total of 30 Californians who were automatically submitted if they have been administered the COVID-19 vaccine.

The lottery is split up into two Fridays, with 15 residents who were already notified of their wins last week.

Five Bay Area residents won big again out of the 15 winners.

It’s a public drawing, but everyone is given an anonymous number and only announcing their county of residence. State health officials then contact each winner privately, and they can choose whether to reveal themselves.

Here’s the breakdown of Bay Area winners on June 11:

  • 2 in Santa Clara County
  • 1 in San Mateo County
  • 1 in San Francisco
  • 1 in Alameda County

In the first drawing, the Bay Area had 6 winners.

One person came forward to share they were one of the 15 lucky Californians last week. His name is Tony. Then on Friday, Newsom spoke with a 17-year-old winner on the stage before the second drawing.

On California’s big June 15 reopening, ten additional residents will get a major prize: $1.5 million each.

You only need at least one dose of the vaccine to be entered, but the prize money is only paid after the person is considered fully vaccinated – which means it’s been two weeks since the second dose of the Moderna or Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.

If you got the one-shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine, you’re fully vaccinated after two weeks has passed.
