Washington County residents who get their first shot of a coronavirus vaccine by June 27 just got a better chance at winning $10,000 — or a scholarship for those ages 12 - 17 — after Washington County announced a new set of prizes added to the “Take Your Shot, Oregon” campaign.

In a statement issued on Friday, June 18, the county said that ten $10,000 lottery prizes for county residents ages 18 and older and five $20,000 college scholarships for residents ages 12 - 17 had been added to the pot for those who’ve received at least one COVID-19 vaccine jab.

“Washington County is using some of the $1.6 million provided by the Governor’s office for these incentives,” said Wendy Gordon, a spokesperson for Washington County Health and Human Services.
