The state announced plans this week to reward Californians for getting vaccinated. If you’re already vaccinated or about to be, you have a chance to win $50,000 or a grand prize of $1.5 million. If you’re not yet vaccinated, get vaccinated as soon as possible to be eligible for a $50 incentive card and other cash prizes.

Ten winners will be selected on June 15 to receive $1.5 million each. All Californians who have had at least one COVID-19 dose will automatically be entered.

Thirty winners will take home $50,000. Fifteen people will win on Friday, June 4 and another 15 will win on Friday, June 11. Everyone with at least one COVID-19 dose in the state of California will be automatically entered to win big on “$50,000 Fridays.”

In addition, starting on May 27, the first two million Californians to start and complete their COVID-19 vaccination will receive a $50 gift card.

If you’re not yet vaccinated, appointments are available. If you are vaccinated, please upload your proof of vaccination to the eTang portal. Even if you are working or studying remotely, this information is requested to understand vaccination levels within the campus community.
