Hat Tip: Ohio

(H/T Scissorhead Dennis Cole)

Sometimes the obvious strategy actually works:

Ohio sees boost in shots after it announces $1 million vaccination lottery

CINCINNATI — Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine’s $5 million lottery to encourage vaccinations appears to be an early win.

State health officials said Monday that more than 25,400 Covid-19 vaccine shots were administered Friday, two days after the program was announced, making it the highest vaccination day in three weeks

DeWine announce the initiative on Twitter on May 12. Under the program, Ohioans 18 and older who have already received at least one dose of a Covid-19 vaccine can enter to win one of five $1 million prizes, state officials said.

Ohioans ages 12 to 17 who have had at least one shot can enter to win one of five four-year, full-ride scholarships to state colleges or universities or possibly private institutions, state officials said.

A winner will be announced on five consecutive Wednesdays, starting May 26, state officials said.

In the age of Reality TeeVee, making vaccination a game show contest is pretty damn smart.
