The state of New Mexico confirmed Thursday, July 29 the next four prize winners in the Vax 2 the Max Sweepstakes, a $10 million cash sweepstakes funded by federal stimulus and intended to incentivize COVID-19 vaccinations.

Four vaccinated New Mexicans - one from each public health region of the state - are each confirmed winners of $250,000, as drawn at random by the New Mexico Lottery. 

The confirmed winners of the Friday, July 23 drawing are: 
 
  • Northeast Region: Trinnie Martinez, Espanola, Rio Arriba County
  • Northwest Region: Roslyn Pursley, Albuquerque, Bernalillo County
  • Southeast Region: Rita Plattor, Artesia, Eddy County
  • Southwest Region: Cheri Hamilton, Las Cruces, Doña Ana County

Non-winning entries will be carried over to each successive $1 million drawing. New Mexicans who have opted in to the sweepstakes do not have to opt in again to remain eligible for future drawings. Vaccinated New Mexicans who have not yet opted in to the sweepstakes still can opt in for future drawings at vax2themaxnm.org. The deadline to opt in for each drawing is 6 p.m. the night before the drawing.

One more $1 million Friday drawing, with four regional $250,000 winners each, occurred July 30. The drawing will be conducted by the New Mexico Lottery on behalf of Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham's administration.

A grand prize drawing of $5 million is scheduled in early August.

The sweepstakes and other financial incentives have contributed to increased interest in vaccinations in New Mexico.

New Mexicans who have received at least one COVID-19 vaccination may opt in to the sweepstakes at vax2themaxNM.org. To be eligible for the $5 million grand prize, New Mexicans must have completed their vaccination series. New Mexicans can schedule their shots at vaccineNM.org.

The rules and regulations of the sweepstakes are available here.
