Baltimore Resident Wins $400,000 Grand Prize in Maryland’s COVID Vaccine Lottery

A Baltimore City resident has won the $400,000 grand prize in Maryland’s “VaxCash” lottery, which awarded $2 million in prizes over the past six weeks to vaccinated residents.

The grand prize drawing on the Fourth of July capped the 41-day program, ran by the state health department and the Maryland Lottery to incentivize people to get vaccinated.

The grand-prize winner’s name hasn’t been made public. Like the regular state lottery, winners have the option to remain anonymous, though the Lottery can publish the winner’s city or county.

The VaxCash lottery awarded $40,000 to one winner for 40 consecutive days beginning May 24, culminating in the final drawing Sunday for the $400,000 prize.

To be eligible for the program, a participant had to be a resident 18 or older and have been immunized in Maryland.

As of Monday, 75.1% of the state’s adult population has received at least one dose of a coronavirus vaccine, with roughly 3.4 million residents now fully vaccinated, according to the state’s online tracker.
