Marin Name Plucked in Vax for the Win Drawing

A lucky Marin resident was among the 10 people selected to win a $1.5 million Vax for the Win prize drawing on June 15. Names are not being announced by the State of California at the drawings; winners, who are notified by phone, may opt to decline publicity associated with the prize.

Those who missed the opportunity can still partake in the "dream vacation" vaccination incentive contest, get a gift card, or get vaccinated to access instant discounts from Taco Bell, Chipotle, and the Golden State Warriors.

More than 838,000 Californians have started the vaccination process since May 27 when Vax for the Win launched. Not yet vaccinated against COVID-19? Get vaccinated as soon as possible to get a $50 incentive card and be eligible for the prizes. Check local opportunities on GetVaccinatedMarin.org.

 

Beyond the Blueprint Now Underway

With California’s tier system officially retired as of Tuesday, Marin County Public Health has created its own webpage to help explain what it means on a local scale. For businesses, new rules will follow the state’s Public Health Officer Order of June 11. The order includes uniform requirements for face coverings, attendance at mega events, and schools. Marin County will remain aligned with the state and does not have any additional restrictions.
