The State of New Mexico wants to give more residents an incentive to go and get vaccinated.

As the nation continues its vaccination efforts, some states are having trouble getting their residents to roll up their sleeves to get the poke. To try and encourage more people to sign up, certain states are offering new incentives programs for people who have been vaccinated or register to receive the vaccine.

There will be five weekly drawings where one weekly winner will receive $250,000. There will be four weekly winners from each of the four public health regions. A total of $1 million dollars in cash prizes will be given away.

There will also be a grand prize of $5 million dollars will be given to one winner at the end of the sweepstakes in August.

You can add New Mexico to the list of states offering an incentive program that has up to $10 million in total prizes you can win. To be eligible to win, you need to opt in to register to win with your personal information at the Vax 2 Max Sweepstakes website.

Other prizes vaccinated New Mexico residents can win include:

  • Fishing and Hunting licenses
  • Annual day passes for New Mexico State parks
  • Day-use passes for New Mexico state museums and cultural centers
  • 1 of 18 stay-cation packages that range from $600 to over $1,000 in hotel, gift cards, and more

Find out more about the New Mexico state vaccination program and the prizes at the KRQE website.
