Lottery for Albertans who get their first vaccine dose

Alberta’s government will hold three draws for $1 million each to incentivize Albertans to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

Beginning June 14, any Alberta resident 18 and older who has received a first dose of vaccine can register to enter for the first $1-million prize. Eligibility for the first $1 million will close seven days after the province beats its Stage 3 target of 70 per cent first-dose vaccination of Albertans 12 and older. The first winner will be announced when Stage 3 of Alberta’s Open for Summer Plan begins.

To encourage more people to get fully vaccinated, two additional lotteries will follow in August and September. Second dose lottery No. 1 winner will be announced on Aug. 31.  Second dose lottery No. 2 winner will be announced on Sept. 30. Any Albertan over the age of 18 who receives two doses will be eligible to win one of these additional $1-million prizes. 

  • To be eligible for the lottery, you must:
    • Opt-in by registering at alberta.ca/lottery.
    • Reside in Alberta at the time of entry and draw.
    • Be 18 years of age and older.
    • Be able to provide proof of receiving your first dose of an approved vaccine for the first draw and both first and second doses for the second and third draws.
    • Please visit alberta.ca/lottery for a complete list of rules.

More than 68.7 per cent of eligible Albertans have received their first dose, including 20.2 per cent who are fully vaccinated with two doses.
