BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) - On Friday, Gov. Andy Beshear invited Kentuckians to get a COVID-19 vaccine and enter for a Shot at a Million – the state’s new vaccine incentive drawing.

WBKO News spoke with some in the community on their thoughts regarding the incentive.

Mark Hendershot, says it is a good incentive, “it’s been a problematic situation for the governor since the get go, and I think this is a good way to get people involved in I also think it’s going to give people a little shot in the arm. So it’s a good idea”

Tammy Calvert thinks otherwise, “to make the people that get the vaccine, he’s offering like, a million dollars. I don’t think that’s that’s right. Because it’s just like throwing money away.”

Karen Stockton says, “with a lot of people losing their jobs, a lot of businesses had to close down. So if you put your name into a drawing, you get vaccinated, put your name into a drawing, you could win a million dollars. And I think that’s wonderful. Also, I like the fact that your child could have an opportunity for a free college education. Now who wouldn’t want that? That’s great.”

There will be two drawings permanent residents in Kentucky can enter.
