LAST WEEK'S WINNERS: Vax Nevada Days drawing for Aug. 12


Vax Nevada Days, a public health initiative, will dole out $5 million in cash and prizes to nearly 2,000 Nevada residents who have initiated the COVID-19 vaccine process.

Announcements will be made every Thursday through Aug. 26, when the grand prize winner of $1 million will be announced.

To be eligible to win, Nevadans must have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. With drawings happening for the next six weeks, the earlier Nevadans are vaccinated, the more chances they’ll have to win.

Information on the COVID-19 vaccine can be found here or by calling 1-800-401-0946.


Vax Nevada Days is a promotion of Immunize Nevada in partnership with the State of Nevada. The giveaways are sponsored by Immunize Nevada and made possible through funds from the American Rescue Plan from the State of Nevada.


If you are a Nevada resident and you have received a dose of the COVID-19 vaccines, you are automatically entered into the drawing. No need to fill out any forms.

If you would like to check to make sure your vaccination was recorded, you can do so at the Nevada WebIZ public portal.


Nevadans who received the COVID-19 vaccine from VA facilities are eligible for cash and prizes through Vax Nevada Days, according to Gov. Steve Sisolak's office.

In a press release from June 23, the governor said in part: "the State is working hard to ensure that members of the military, Veterans and their families within Nevada who received their vaccine through the federal program also have the opportunity to participate in Vax Nevada Days.”

To ensure the privacy of veterans and those receiving their vaccines at VA facilities, each participant will be entered into Vax Nevada Days using a randomly assigned unique identifier code. No personally identifiable information such as name, birthday, or social security numbers will be shared with anyone outside of VA. Winners will be contacted by VA staff.


According to the state's website: Winners will be notified by an official representative of Immunize Nevada using the contact information within an individual’s Nevada WebIZ record. Only Immunize Nevada and the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services will know the identity of the person associated with the random number that has been drawn.

Winners will not be asked to pay any fees to claim a prize. Program representatives will never ask you for your bank account number or credit card number. Nor will they ask you to send money. Any fraudulent activities or misinformation can be reported to info@vaxnevadadays.org.
