CDPH Holds Final “Vax for the Win” Incentive Drawing
Today, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) hosted a Dream Vacations Giveaway as the final drawing in the state’s “Vax for the Win” Incentive Program to encourage more state residents to receive a vaccine against COVID-19. According to CDPH, the incentive program continues to have a positive impact on the rate of vaccinations since its launch in late May, increasing the number of doses administered in the state’s lowest resourced communities for consecutive weeks.
During the incentive program’s peak, California realized a 33 percent increase in vaccinations (5/27-6/02 vs. 6/03-6/09) at the time making California one of the only states in the country to achieve a week-over-week increase in the vaccination rate. Outside of this peak, CDPH indicates the program has shown promising results in slowing down the rate of decline in first doses administered that California and the rest of the country is experiencing.
Today’s drawing offered all residents aged 18 and older who are at least partially vaccinated a chance to win one of six vacation getaways to destination cities, including Anaheim, Los Angeles, Palm Springs, San Diego, and San Francisco. Today’s winners live in the following counties: Alameda, Contra Costa, Orange, San Francisco, San Mateo, and Santa Cruz.
$50 “You Call the Shot” gift cards remain available for any residents beginning their vaccination series, while supplies last. A limited supply of free Six Flags theme parks passes remain available at select clinics in the Bay Area and Los Angeles area.
