State selects 256 more winners in vaccine lottery

The state has selected its third round of winners in the Shot of a Lifetime vaccine lottery program to encourage Washingtonians to get COVID-19 vaccines. 

Lottery officials selected 256 winners Tuesday morning. Winners will be contacted by phone, email or text messages on Wednesday (June 23).

A second drawing held Tuesday morning was exclusively for teens 12-17 who have been vaccinated. The state chose 15 winners to receive the equivalent to one year of resident, undergraduate tuition and state-mandated fees at Washington’s public universities. In most cases, parents will need to consent to their children getting the prizes. 

If the winners chosen this morning don't respond within 72 hours, alternate winners will be selected.
