New Mexico’s Vax 2 the Max Sweepstakes, a $10 million total cash sweepstakes funded by federal stimulus and intended to incentivize COVID-19 vaccinations, will award its first four major prizes to vaccinated New Mexicans on Friday, June 18.
New Mexicans who have received their COVID-19 vaccination must opt in to be eligible for the sweepstakes by 6 p.m. today, Thursday, June 17, to be eligible for the Friday, June 18, drawing.
“These are going to be pretty spectacular odds for New Mexicans,” Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham said. “New Mexicans have been through a lot this last year. I’m glad we’re going to have a little fun, and I’m grateful to New Mexicans who continue to get their shots, who encourage family and friends to get their shots, because with every vaccine administered we are one step closer to ending this pandemic.”
