The state of West Virginia has come up with a way to encourage their residents to get vaccinated during such rough times in the country.
West Virginia will be putting the name of vaccine recipients’ in a draw where winners will be getting a bunch of guns.
The drawings will run from June 20 to August 4, 2021.
Residents that are vaccinated have the chance of winning 5 custom hunting rifles and 5 custom hunting shotguns.
Not only that, but 2 brand-new custom-outfitted trucks will be given away, 5 life-time hunting and fishing licenses, and 25 getaway to the state’s many parks.
If you think that’s cool, you’re wrong because the the government of West Virginia are coming up with more ideas.
The state government also unveiled a financial lottery system.
For 1 month, one person will be getting $1 million every week.
The grand prize of $1.58 million will be drawn on August 4, 2021. The runner up of that draw is going to get $588,000.
They are not stopping there.
The state is also giving away 2 full 4-year-old scholarships for any institution for people that are aged 12 and 25 years old.
West Virginia Government Jim Justice unveiled the policy during a press conference this week.
Jim he said he is excited and hopeful that it will work.
He went on:
The faster we get people across the finish line the more lives we save. That’s all there is to it. If the tab just keeps running the cost is enormous. The hospitalisations are enormous. We have to get all of our folks across the finish line.
If you have received 1 or both doses of an available coronavirus vaccine in West Virginia, you are eligible for the draw.
