The Philly Vax Sweepstakes is a series of three citywide drawings designed to give Philadelphians extra motivation to get their vaccination against COVID-19 as the city fully reopens this summer.
A total of 36 vaccinated Philadelphians will win cash prizes up to $50,000, totaling nearly $400,000 in giveaways.
In each of the three drawings on June 21, July 6, and July 19, six individuals will win $1,000; four will win $5,000; and two will win $50,000.
In response to the lowest number of new cases since late September 2020 and percent positive rates below 3 percent, the City will be lifting virtually all Safer-at-Home restrictions, including density limits, maximum capacity limits, distancing rules, etc. on Wednesday, June 2.
The indoor mask mandate and 11 p.m. last call for dining order will continue to be enforced until the Health Department reviews the state of the pandemic and may drop those restrictions on Friday, June 11.
It was previously announced that the City would lift restrictions on Friday, June 11, but the continued low rates prompted the change in plans. Learn more about these changes.
