Add Maine to the list of states offering a financial incentive to get the COVID-19 vaccine to help reach the national goal of 70 percent of adults fully vaccinated by the Fourth of July.

Gov. Janet Mills announced the “Don’t Miss Your Shot: Vaccinationland Sweepstakes" with a jackpot that will match the number of Maine residents who have received the vaccination.

The final jackpot will be determined by the number of vaccines on July 4 when Mills announces the winner. If the drawing were held on Wednesday the jackpot would have been $876,655.

The game is open to all residents ages 12 and older who have had at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccination since December 15 when they first became available in Maine. Registration is open on the and continues through 11:59 p.m. on June 30.

Both doses of the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines or the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine must have been received in the state of Maine.

"Maine is a national leader in COVID-19 vaccination thanks to the more than 876,000 people who have already rolled up their sleeves," Mills said. "Our goal with the Don’t Miss Your Shot: Vaccinationland Sweepstakes is to encourage even more people to get the vaccine and declare their independence from COVID-19 as we approach the Fourth of July."

Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker announced its VaxMillions game on Tuesday with five million dollar prizes to be drawn weekly starting July 26. Five $300,000 college grants will also be awarded.

New Hampshire has not offered any incentives to bring up vaccination numbers which have leveled off in recent weeks.
