Eligible Ohioans had until Sunday night to register and opt into the program for Monday’s drawing. People who entered for previous drawings are automatically entered into the final drawing.

Ohioans looking to opt-in to the final drawing have until 11:59 p.m. Sunday, June 20, to enter either at the state’s website, or by calling the Ohio Department of Health at 1-833-4-ASK-ODH.

While the Vax-A-Million program is nearing its finale, Gov. Mike DeWine teased more vaccine incentives could be on the horizon.

“Stay tuned,” DeWine said during a news conference with the third round of winners last week.

DeWine added the state has been working with the private sector to come up with additional incentive programs for people in the state.
