EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) — The State of New Mexico on Wednesday confirmed the fourth winner in the second drawing of the Vax 2 the Max Sweepstakes, a $10 million cash sweepstakes funded by federal stimulus and intended to incentivize COVID-19 vaccinations.
The fourth confirmed winner in the July 2 drawing is Jocelyn Kidd from Las Cruces.
Non-winning entries will be carried over to each successive $1 million drawing. New Mexicans who have opted in to the sweepstakes do not have to opt-in again to remain eligible for future drawings. Vaccinated New Mexicans who have not yet opted in to the sweepstakes still can opt-in for future drawings at vax2themaxnm.org. The deadline to opt-in for each drawing is 6 p.m. the night before the drawing.
Three more $1 million Friday drawings, with four regional $250,000 winners each, will occur.
The next $1 million drawing is scheduled for July 16, followed by drawings scheduled for July 23 and July 30.
A grand prize drawing of $5 million is scheduled for early August.
The sweepstakes and other financial incentives have contributed to increased interest in vaccinations statewide.
