RALEIGH, N.C. — Governor Cooper has announced new vaccination incentives for the state of North Carolina.
They plan to offer four 1 million dollar prizes over the next eight weeks. There will also be drawings for four college scholarships valued at $125,000.
Anyone 18 and over who have been vaccinated, or get vaccinated before June 23, will be automatically entered. Drawings will happen every other Wednesday starting June 23 and ending August 4.
This comes on the heels of other states such as Ohio, California and New Mexico offering similar incentives.
Currently 50% of North Carolinians are fully vaccinated, and 54% are partially vaccinated.
