CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WDVM) — Following vaccine promotions from states like Ohio and Maryland, West Virginia will be starting its own incentive program.

While weren’t many details on Thursday when the lottery was announced, Gov. Jim Justice said drawings for multiple prizes will begin on June 20th, West Virginia’s birthday.

“There are going to be so many wonderful prizes that you can win, it will blow you away,” Gov. Justice said.

There are still things that need to be worked out to make sure every resident who’s already gotten a vaccine will be entered into the drawing. Justice will share more information during his Tuesday COVID-19 briefing.

The prizes will range from college scholarships to F-150 pickup trucks to large cash prizes.

“We’re going to make a few West Virginians millionaires before this is over. And we can do that, but we gotta get you vaccinated,” said Justice.
