The promotion is to incentivize Marylanders to get COVID-19 booster shots.
According to the Maryland Lottery, “the first drawing on February 15 will award a $500,000 prize to one vaccinated and boosted Marylander. The next 10 weekly drawings will each award one $50,000 prize. A grand prize drawing will be held May 3 to award one $1 million prize.”

Each eligible Maryland resident will be randomly assigned a number in a secure system maintained by MDH, which serves as the custodian of Maryland’s vaccination records. Separately, the Lottery will use a random number generator to select a winning number each week from the total number of people who have been vaccinated.
MDH will notify the winners, who must provide written consent of their willingness to accept the prize. Then, the Lottery will contact the winners with instructions on how to claim.
Prizes will be paid from funds the State of Maryland received via the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA), federal legislation that included allocations to state governments for COVID-19 relief and vaccination efforts.
