Several vaccinated Canadians will be able to share nearly $ 1.5 million (1.23 million euros) or scholarships. A lottery was launched on Wednesday by the province of Manitoba, the territory most affected by the Covid-19 epidemic.

The local government wants to accelerate its vaccination campaign, announced the organization of two draws this summer, reserved for all those who received one or two doses of vaccine before September 6. For each draw, seven prizes of $ 100,000 and ten scholarships of $ 25,000 will be awarded to the winners.

The scholarships will be reserved for students aged 12 to 17, a government statement said. People who received a first dose of the coronavirus vaccine before August 2 will be eligible for the first draw and the second will be reserved for people fully vaccinated, the second being reserved for people fully vaccinated before September 6.

“The sooner you get vaccinated, the faster you can get back to normal life,” said Brian Pallister, Premier of the province. “This lottery gives Manitobans even more reason to roll up their sleeves, not once, but twice. The province of 1.4 million people currently has the highest number of daily Covid-19 cases relative to its population. A poll published on Wednesday places its second-to-last Prime Minister among those of the ten Canadian provinces for his management of the pandemic.
