The Quebec government’s goal with the vaccination lottery is to get 75% of its eligible population vaccinated by the end of August.
Any Quebecer who has received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine can register for the contest, regardless of their vaccination dates, and become eligible for prizes.
Starting on August 6, weekly Friday draws will be held in two categories. Citizens aged 18 and older could win up to $1 million in cash. Bursaries of up to $20,000 will be awarded to the 12 to 17 vaccinated age group. The newly added travel prizes will be offer to the 18 and older age group.
To be eligible for the vaccination lottery, participants must meet the following criteria:
- received the vaccine in Quebec
- had a confirmed diagnosis of COVID-19 and received a dose of the vaccine
- received a vaccine recognized by Health Canada outside Quebec
Participants need to only register once. Once entered, they will be eligible for all the draws within their age group.
As of Friday morning (July 30), 10,912,024 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine have been administered across Quebec since December 2020.
