Ohio Vaccine Lottery $1 Million Prize Was Won By A 22-Year-Old

The first draw for the Ohio vaccine lottery has happened and a 22-year-old is the lucky winner of a $1 million prize!

Abbigail Bugenske was driving to her parent's house on May 26 when she got the call from Ohio Governor Mike DeWine, who told her she had won $1 million. She said that when she arrived, she was screaming so much that her parents thought she was crying and something was wrong.

When asked what she plans to do with her winnings, the 22-year-old said she hasn't thought about it much but she'll probably donate some of it to charity, buy a used car and invest.

There will be a total of five $1 million prizes given out for the Vax-A-Million lottery to five residents who've received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine in order to promote vaccination in the state.

This isn't the only vaccine incentive being offered in the U.S. Other perks include free baseball tickets, free donuts and even free super-likes on Tinder.
