Newsom Conducts Second “Vax for the Win” Drawing

Governor Gavin Newsom today conducted the state’s second “$50,000 Fridays” drawing as part of the “Vax for the Win” incentive program to encourage California residents to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. 15 winners were randomly selected, each winning $50,000, for a total of $750,000 in cash prizes. Today’s winners are from the following counties: Monterey, Sacramento, Alameda, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Fresno, San Diego, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Riverside, Orange, and Kern.

The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) will notify winners of the random drawing over the next couple of days by telephone, text, email, or other contact information. All winners will have the option to accept their cash prize while remaining anonymous or decline the prize altogether.

On Tuesday, Governor Newsom will conduct the grand prize drawing of the incentive program, awarding 10 vaccinated residents $1.5 million each.
