Anyone who gets vaccinated at select state-run vaccination sites in New York next week will receive a lottery scratch ticket with prizes potentially worth millions, as Gov. Andrew Cuomo tries to boost slowing vaccination rates.

由於紐約州長古莫試圖提高趨緩的疫苗接種率,下週在該州選定的州設疫苗接種站施打疫苗者,將會拿到一張可能包含價值高達數百萬美元獎金的刮刮樂彩券。

The pilot program will offer prizes from $20 up to $5 million and run from Monday, May 24 to Friday, May 28 at 10 state-run sites.

這項試行計畫將提供從20美元到上看500萬美元的獎金,從5月24日週一到5月28日週五,在10個州設站點執行。

The governor said there’s a one in nine chance of winning a scratch ticket prize in New York, which is joining other states, including Ohio, with similar lottery incentives. Only residents 18 and older are eligible.

包括俄亥俄等其他州也提供類似的彩券誘因,這位州長說,紐約刮刮樂中獎機率為9分之1。僅18歲及以上居民有資格。
