More Winners On The Vax-A-Million

The state announces the third pair of Ohio Vax-a-Million winners…even as the initial bump from the incentive program fades and vaccination numbers continue dropping. More than 3.3 million people entered their names for a shot at the $1 million dollars, up a little from the 3.2 million who had registered for last week’s drawing. More than 143,000 children entered their names for the scholarship, up from just over 133,000 last week. Initially, Gov., DeWine’s May 12 announcement of the incentive program had the desired effect, leading to a 43% boost in state vaccination numbers over the previous week. That ended up being short-lived. Vaccine reluctance appears to be so great…the governor made an urgent appeal to providers…to distribute as many shots of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine as possible, with 200,000 doses set to expire on June 23.
