How to make sure you're entered in Colorado's COVID-19 vaccine sweeps
The first of five drawings for the COVID-19 vaccination sweepstakes takes place Wednesday, but a glitch may leave scores of residents out of the running.
The state of play: At least 65,000 people who were vaccinated through the federal Veterans Administration are not included in the state's records used to randomly select winners, CPR reports.
- Moreover, as many as 11% of immunizations don't get recorded immediately in the state database, Colorado health officials acknowledged.
What to know: To check to see if your name's in the drawing, go here.
- If you can't find your information, the state advises contacting your provider before emailing them at [email protected].
Be smart: To get entered to win the first $1 million prize in federal dollars, you need to get your first shot today. Here's a resource to find vaccination locations.
- Eligibility is based on receiving your first dose the night before each drawing. Details here.
The first winner will be announced at 5pm Friday.
