Still, the state has been trending down since April in terms of vaccine doses administered by day. The “Vax for the Win” program aims to try and stop that slide by offering prizes and other giveaways to people for getting their vaccine – including a $1.5 million grand prize that was given out to 10 people back on June 15 when California fully reopened its economy.
To try and reach even more people, the state has also partnered with McDonald’s to hold popup vaccination clinics at some of the chain’s locations. People who get there vaccine shot at the McDonald’s popups will also get a coupon for a free menu item.
