North Carolina Selects Second COVID Vaccine Lottery Winners


North Carolina health officials have unveiled the state’s latest recipients of a $1 million cash prize and $125,000 college scholarship for getting a COVID-19 vaccine. Natalie Everett of Pineville won the $1 million before taxes. High school student and Greensboro resident Jessica Klima earned the $125,000 scholarship. The winners were selected on Thursday. Two more contests will be held on July 21 and Aug. 4. The winners will be announced the week after the drawings. North Carolina's latest winners were chosen at a time when fewer residents are getting vaccinated. Unvaccinated adults who come in for a shot at a participating vaccination site qualify for a $25 cash card.
