Wallowa and Curry Counties increase vaccination incentives

Residents of Wallowa and Curry Counties who receive a COVID-19 vaccine by June 27 will be automatically entered to win the following new prizes in addition to the Take Your Shot, Oregon prizes.

  • Wallowa County: One additional $10,000 prize for adults and two $5,000 education scholarship prizes for youth
  • Curry County: Two additional $10,000 prizes for adults

Most counties in Oregon receive funding through OHA to support their local public health authority’s work on equity, with two exceptions.

In Wallowa County, OHA acts as the public health authority, and Curry County is in the process of transferring their public health authority to OHA as well. This spring, OHA began leading the vaccination work in Curry County.

All vaccinated Oregonians will be eligible for a chance to win the Take Your Shot, Oregon $1 million prize, $10,000 prizes in each county and five $100,000 Oregon College Savings Plan scholarships.
