NEW YORK — New Yorkers who aren’t vaccinated against COVID yet have another chance to win up to $5 million.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Saturday the state’s “Vax and Scratch” COVID-19 vaccine incentive program will be extended at 10 mass vaccination sites.

The program offers New York State Lottery scratch-off tickets to anyone 18 and older who gets vaccinated at a participating site. Prizes range from $20 to $5 million.

“A robust vaccination program is a vital cornerstone of New York’s efforts to rebuild our economy, and the state is implementing creative strategies to convince residents and families to get vaccinated for COVID-19,” Cuomo said. “This potential $5 million grand prize for getting vaccinated is the latest salvo in our campaign to convince New Yorkers to take the shot, and we’re extending it to give even more people a chance at a winning ticket.”

The following mass vaccination sites will provide Vax and Scratch lottery tickets beginning on Monday and ending on Friday. The sites are open to both walk-ins and appointments.
