An American has pocketed $ 2 million (1.68 million euros) by winning the jackpot of the lottery organized as part of the Michigan State vaccination program. Christine Duval had been vaccinated in April 2021, reports Insider. The local authorities had organized a competition from July 1 to 30 open to all residents of the state who had received at least one dose of vaccine after December 1, 2020.
In addition to the jackpot of $ 2 million, a jackpot of $ 1 million, or 842,000 euros, was to be won. Michigan had also involved a check for $ 50,000 (just over 42,000 euros) each day and the payment of school fees for nine young vaccinated between the ages of 12 and 17, AP said. The program was intended to limit the dreaded drop in the number of vaccinations during the summer.
Donations to associations
This gain “will help us achieve all our dreams,” said Christine Duval. The American intends to put money aside to finance the studies of her three children, renovate her house and make donations to actors working in the field of mental health. “We are very lucky and we want to give to those in need,” said the big winner. The pandemic has been very hard on everyone ”.
Christine Duval had left her job as project manager in a language training company in 2020, at the start of the health crisis linked to the coronavirus. Following the closure of schools, she wanted to take care of the education of her daughter, now ten years old. The multimillionaire’s husband and their two other children aged 15 and 18 are also vaccinated.
