Missouri:

In order to boost vaccination percentages, Missouri has established an inventive program for residents who have been vaccinated or will be vaccinated in the near future.


The State of Missouri has divided applicants into three groups: Red, White, and Blue. The Red group is Missourians over the age of 18 who received at least the first dose of the vaccine on or after July 21, 2021.


The White group is also Missourians over the age of 18, but those who received at least the first dose of the vaccine before July 21, 2021. Both of these groups have a chance to win the prize of $10,000 cash.


The Blue group is composed of Missourians between the ages of 12 and 17 who have received the vaccination at any time. The prize for this group is a chance to win $10,000 in an education savings account.


There are five rounds of the Missouri vaccination incentive drawing, with 80 winners in the Red group, 80 winners in the White group, and 20 winners in the Blue group.


The drawing timeline is as follows: July 21 - Registration opens

Aug 11 - Entries accepted through 11:59pm

Aug 13 - Winners are drawn

Aug 25 - Announcement of confirmed winners of Round 1
