Quebec to hand out $2M in prizes to boost vaccination rates



Quebec will hold draws for $2 million in cash prizes and bursaries this summer in a bid to get as many people vaccinated as possible before September. Health Minister Christian Dubé stressed that the province wants to do everything it can to encourage inoculation against COVID-19. ("Vaccination has its benefits") in partnership with Loto-Québec, to prevent the spike in hospitalizations that has accompanied the rise in delta cases in populations with low vaccination rates. Lacking concrete data on the effects such campaigns, Daniel Paré, who is running Quebec's vaccination campaign, said Quebec will be watching for any impact a lottery has on vaccination trend lines. On Sept. 3, a $1-million prize will be drawn for fully vaccinated adults, and 16 $20,000 bursaries will be drawn for fully vaccinated teens.
