Coronavirus Coverage

Similar to what many states including Maryland, are doing to incentivize residents to get vaccinated, Governor John Carney and the Delaware Division of Public Health (DPH) has announced a cash prize drawing for Delawareans aged 12-17.

The program being called DE Wins! is a public education and incentive program aimed to increased COVID-19 vaccination rates in Delaware, according to

“Delawareans ​12+ vaccinated from May 25-June 29, ​and any Delawarean ages 12-17 vaccinated to date, will be entered to win $5,000 in cash and additional prizes in twice-weekly drawings conducted by the Delaware Lottery.”

“Other prizes Delawareans can win include a four-day vacation, a full scholarship to a public Delaware university, annual Delaware State Park passes, tickets and camping at Firefly Music Festival, and prize packages from partners including Funland, the Wilmington Blue Rocks, and the Delmarva Shorebirds. Twice-weekly drawings will be conducted by the Delaware Lottery on Mondays and Fridays from May 31 through June 30.”

“The Delaware Division of Small Business has launched the Small Business Incentive Fund to reimburse eligible qualifying businesses for incentives, which will include restaurants, bars, breweries, and gyms.”

On June 30, every Delawarean who has been vaccinated in Delaware will be entered to win a $302,000 cash prize and two low number Delaware license plates, which will also be conducted through the Delaware Lottery.

From May 25 – June 29, Delawareans who are vaccinated at locations managed by DPH and DEMA, including Curative vaccination sites and DPH clinics will receive a $10 gift card.
