Louisiana’s Shot at a Million rewards program registration now open

Coronavirus

BATON ROUGE, La. (KLFY) – Governor John Bel Edwards is encouraging everyone in Louisiana to get vaccinated.

Starting Monday at noon, you can enter a lottery for a chance to win big cash prizes just for getting the COVID-19 vaccine.

You can register online only after getting your first dose.

People who are 18 or older can win one of four 100k dollar cash prizes or the one million dollar grand prize.

Younger people, aged 12-17, can enter to win one of nine 100-thousand dollar scholarships.

With the delta variant spreading quickly in the United States, officials are urging people to get the shot.

Louisiana is sitting at only about 33 percent vaccinated. Those who have already received their vaccines can still enter.

To participate, Edwards said Louisiana residents must be able to prove they have taken at least one COVID-19 vaccination dose and they must register at https://shotatamillion.com/. They may also register by phone at 1-877-356-1511. Registration opens Monday, June 21 at noon.
