JEFFERSON CITY, MO — An official total of 637,485 entries were included in the fourth (of five) MO VIP drawings which occurred on Friday.
The MO VIP incentivizes vaccination for those who have not yet been vaccinated and also provides an opportunity for rewards for the more than 3.3 million Missourians who have already made the decision to be protected through vaccination.
Notification of 180 new preliminary winners occurred Friday evening by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) using the information provided at the time the individual registered.
DHSS will now work with preliminary winners to verify their vaccination and registration information before they can be confirmed as winners. Names of confirmed winners will be announced at MOStopsCovid.com/win on October 6.
Since the MO VIP launch on July 21, 2021, 52,068 adults (18 and over) were vaccinated and entered the MO VIP for a chance to win. As of today, federal and state data show that more than 56 percent of Missouri’s eligible population (age 12 and up) has completed vaccination, while 64 percent have initiated vaccination by receiving a first dose.
Those who have already entered the MO VIP should not enter again. Unless selected and confirmed as a winner in one of the drawings, individuals will remain eligible for all future drawings.
Entries are divided into three categories:
- Red: Missourians age 18 and up receiving at least one dose of vaccine on or after July 21.
- White: Missourians age 18 and up receiving at least one dose of vaccine before July 21.
- Blue: Missourians ages 12 to 17 receiving at least one dose of vaccine at any time
