LOTTERIES SOUTH AFRICA R2 million in the lottery for South African vaccinated people 1 year ago Szarlot Post Views: 2,314 Everyone vaccinated against Covid-19 before the end of the year will stand a chance of winning up to R100,000 in a lucky draw managed by the DG Murray Trust, working with the National Department of Health. Winners will receive prizes totaling R2 million in lucky draws to be conducted in December and January. The value of the Vooma Vaccination Voucher has also been increased to R200 from Monday (29 November), given the heightened urgency to ensure that all people aged 50 and older are vaccinated without delay. The offer of the grocery voucher, issued by SMS and redeemable at Shoprite stores, is made to all people aged 50 and older who come for vaccination for the very first time. To be fair, those people who have already received the R100 voucher will automatically receive another R100. “The new variant is a wake-up call for us all. In the past month, the rate of first dose vaccinations for adults has plunged by nearly 50%. While three-fifths of people over 50 are now vaccinated, there are still 4 million individuals in that age group who are not. We must do everything we can to prevent their families spending the festive season in hospital or in mortuaries. But this crisis is not only about older people as thirteen million people aged 18 -34 are still unvaccinated. They are driving the new wave. We have to make their Covid-19 vaccination mean more in their lives, and one way is to encourage them through incentives such as airtime and lucky draws. We don’t know whether they will work, but we do know that we must try.” – said Dr David Harrison, chief executive of the DG Murray Trust. Anyone who has received at least one dose of the Covid-19 vaccine confirmed through the Electronic Vaccination Data System (EVDS) will automatically be entered into the lucky draw. This includes all those already vaccinated as well as anybody who receives the jab before 31 December 2021. Between 3 December and 31 January, the winners will receive: One of five prizes of R100,000 each One of 50 prizes of R10,000 each One of 1,000 prizes of R1,000 each. The final lucky draw will be held on 25 January 2022 to allow for all paper records of people vaccinated before the end of the year to be captured. Winners will be notified by telephone on the number given at the time of registration for vaccination. Both Vooma Vouchers and the lucky draw are facilitated by a private foundation, the DG Murray Trust, which manages a number of donor-funded initiatives to support the implementation of the Covid-19 vaccination program.
