"Take Your Shot Oregon" lottery: Oregonian age 18 or over who have received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine by June 28 will be eligible to win $1 million. Additional prizes are $10,000 to one person in each of Oregon's 36 counties, and five $100,000 scholarships to vaccinated students ages 12 to 17.
Another reason to get vaccinated: When 65 percent of Lane County residents 16 and older get one vaccine dose the county drops to Low Risk (currently at 62.34 percent). When Oregon reaches 70 percent, most COVID-19 restrictions will be lifted.
