'Vax & Scratch' Offers New Yorkers $20 Scratch-Offs Tickets

New Yorkers can get a free scratch-off ticket worth $20 when receiving either their first Pfizer vaccine or the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccination. The promotion runs from June 7 through June 11, 2021, with the possibility of extension depending on the success of the promotion.

The top prize on the ticket is worth $5 million – one of the biggest grand prizes available on New York Scratch-off games. When you receive your Pfizer or Johnson & Johnson dose, you’ll be in with a chance of winning the big-money prize.

The scratch-off ticket that those getting their vaccination will receive is the "$5,000,000 Mega Multiplier" Game #1439. At the time of writing, there are still two top prizes worth $5 million remaining.
