How to register for Louisiana’s ‘Shot at a Million’ vaccine lottery


(KTAL/KMSS) — What would you do with $100,000 or $1 million? Lucky winners will soon find out as Louisiana launches its “Shot at a Million” contest, which is a lottery-style incentive to help boost COVID-19 vaccination rates.

LDH is offering the chance to win $100,000 every week starting July 9th and a grand prize of $1 million at the end of the month to all Louisiana residents ages 18+ who have chosen to receive at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine — all you have to do is enter.

Louisiana residents ages 12-17 who have gotten at least one dose of the vaccine are eligible to win one of nine $100,000 scholarships.

As of Wednesday, the Louisiana Department of Health says more than 300,000 people have signed up for the state’s $1 million COVID-19 vaccination lottery since registration opened on Monday, June 21.
