If you haven’t received your COVID-19 vaccine yet, you might be in luck this weekend.

The Pima County Health Department is giving away scratch tickets to the Arizona Lottery valued at up to $ 10,000 to $ 200, which will be vaccinated for the first time in two different locations over the holiday weekend.

On Saturday, May 29, 100 of the tickets will be given away at the Westgate Shopping Center at 1785 W. Ajo Way and 100 more on Monday, May 31, at the Desert Vista Campus of Pima Community College at 5901 S. Calle Santa Cruz .

The health department is giving the first 100 people to receive their vaccine at each location the tickets worth various cash prizes. The odds of getting a winning ticket are 1 in 4.

Individuals 21 years of age or older who are receiving the one-time Johnson & Johnson vaccine or the first dose of Pfizer or Moderna vaccine are eligible for a ticket.

The county is testing the vaccine incentive water to see if the scratch cards are motivating those who are reluctant to get a vaccine to get their shot. If the program is successful, the county can return with more vaccination events where lottery tickets are offered for a shot.

As a separate incentive, vaccine recipients at the Pima Air and Space Museum’s mobile FEMA vaccination center can get free entry to the museum until Saturday, May 29th. The website is open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
