Vax-A-Million – The Ohio Department of Health and the Ohio Lottery would like to congratulate the winners of Ohio’s third Vax-a-Million drawing.

Mark Cline from Richwood in Union County won the third $1 million prize.

Sara Afaneh from Sheffield Lake in Lorain County won the third student full-ride scholarship including four years tuition, books, and room and board at an Ohio public university or college.

The winners were selected in the drawing conducted by the Ohio Lottery and overseen by the Ohio Auditor of State on Monday, June 7, 2021.

“There are only two more drawings left, so I urge Ohioans to get the shot and then enter for a shot to win a million dollars or, for those aged 12-17 a chance to a four-year, full-ride scholarship including room, board, tuition and books at an Ohio public college or university,” said Governor Mike DeWine.

According to DeWine, 3,362,203 Ohioans entered the drawing to win $1 million prize, and 143,604 Ohioans age 12 to 17 entered to the drawing for a college scholarship. The number of entries in both groups increased from the previous week with 136,414 additional adult entries and 10,701 additional student entries.

There are two Ohio Vax-a-Million drawings remaining. The entry period for the next drawing ends June 13, 2021 at 11:59:59 p.m.

With more than 5.3 million Ohioans who have started the vaccination process, not all who are eligible have entered. Ohio Vax-a-Million is an opt-in program, meaning you are not automatically entered. It takes less than two minutes to enter online at ohiovaxamillion.com. Those without Internet access can also enter by phone at 1-833-4-ASK-ODH (1-833-427-5634). Opt-in entries were collected beginning May 18.

Once you enter, your entry will be carried over through all the drawings. You do not need to submit your name each week. The entry list will be reviewed, and all duplicate entries will be removed prior to each week’s drawing. In addition, any winner will be removed from the eligible draw list for subsequent drawings. Vaccination records will be verified for winners. If you are an Ohio resident who was vaccinated in another state, you are eligible, but will need to present proof of vaccination.

Winners will be announced each Wednesday at approximately 7:29 p.m. The final announcement will take place on Wednesday, June 23. You can view video of the May 26 winner announcement at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MD9tJvnmpk4, and the June 2 winner announcement at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=febGkV3dkSM.

Ohio Vax-a-Million is a public outreach campaign and initiative to increase awareness of the availability and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines and provide incentives to Ohioans to get a COVID-19 vaccination.
