Having your name entered into Ohio’s Vax-a-Million drawing will not be automatic for registered voters.

State officials on Monday announced that those wishing to be considered for the $1 million lotteries must not only be vaccinated, but must register online, or by phone.

Starting Tuesday, May 18, 2021, you may enter online at  www.OhioVaxAMillion.com or phone the Ohio Department of Health call center at 1-833-4-ASKODH

You don’t need to enter more than once to be eligible for all five drawings being held on May 26, June 2, June 9, June 16, and June 23. Winners will be chosen randomly by a computer.

The winners will be every Wednesday night at 7:29 p.m. Winners will be contacted by state officials.

Any Ohioan 18 or older is eligible for the $1 million contest, no matter where you received your vaccination. You must have received at least one vaccination.
