LAS VEGAS, NV (STL.News) Today, Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak was joined by representatives from Immunize Nevada and The Smith Center to announce the third round of winners for Vax Nevada Days, a public health incentive program launched last month.
A total of 204 vaccinated individuals aged 12 and older were drawn as winners in the third Vax Nevada Days drawing. Some recipients who live in the Las Vegas area were in attendance at The Smith Center for this week’s live reveal, but winners are located throughout the state. A live watch party also took place on campus at the University of Nevada, Reno during today’s announcement, so that winners from Northern Nevada could also celebrate with their families and friends.
Winners will be announced every Thursday through Aug. 26, when a $1 million grand-prize winner will be named.
“Vax Nevada Days is a celebration of all that COVID-19 vaccination enables us to do — like attending live arts performances at places like The Smith Center, which is why we chose it as our venue for today’s announcement,” Gov. Sisolak said. “Today we’re also celebrating the everyday Nevadans who are protecting themselves and helping to make community gatherings possible again.”
The following is a list of winners’ names and the amounts they were rewarded that was read during tonight’s event.
