WWLP / 22 News Springfield reports that residents aged 12 and over who are fully immunized prior to each draw are eligible to enter the contest. Residents aged 12 to 17 can enter for a chance to win one of five $ 300,000 scholarships and residents 18 and over will have the opportunity to win one of five cash prizes of $ 1 million.
To participate, you must be fully immunized and apply on the VaxMillionsGiveaway.com site. For any Bay State resident who does not have internet access or needs assistance, a call center will be available to facilitate the registration process.
The call center can be reached by calling 211 at the times below:
