County Announces COVID-19 Vaccine Raffles
The County of Santa Clara, the SAP Center, the Golden State Warriors, and the City of San José partner to offer free tickets to area events and other prizes
Santa Clara County, CA – The County of Santa Clara, the SAP Center, the Golden State Warriors and the City of San José are collaborating to raffle off more than 100 tickets to upcoming events and other prizes to anyone who gets a COVID-19 vaccine at select County-run vaccination sites in the next few weeks. Tickets to the Golden State Warriors, Harry Styles, the Weeknd, Bad Bunny, Justin Bieber and other artists will be given away. Different prizes will be raffled off every week. Each Wednesday, 8 to 10 winners will be announced.
Anyone can enter the raffle by getting vaccinated at the following County-run sites: Overfelt High School, the County Fairgrounds Expo Hall, Emmanuel Baptist Church, Valley Specialty Center, Levi’s Stadium (through June 24th), Mountain View Community Center, or Gilroy High School. Pop-up clinics are not included in the raffle.
“We’re very excited to partner with the SAP Center, the Warriors, and the City of San José on these raffles,” said Santa Clara County Supervisor Cindy Chavez. “At this point in the pandemic, getting the vaccines should be fun and easy for everyone who is eligible. We hope that this raffle incentivizes people who haven’t yet gotten their vaccine to do so.”
Individuals who have already been vaccinated will be eligible for the raffle if they bring proof of vaccination and accompany an unvaccinated person to a County-operated clinic for a vaccine.
“Even at this phase of the pandemic, where many look forward to brighter days ahead, it’s vital that we remain vigilant about vaccinations,” said San José Mayor Sam Liccardo. “While we have made great progress, we must continue to push and get all our youngest residents vaccinated. I’m grateful to our community partners for stepping up to encourage all San Joseans to get their shot.”
“People who aren’t vaccinated are still very susceptible to severe illness from COVID-19,” said Dr. Marty Fenstersheib, COVID-19 Vaccine Officer for the County of Santa Clara. “It’s important for everyone in the county who is eligible to get the vaccine. We hope this opportunity will encourage people to do the right thing and get vaccinated for their safety and for the safety of our entire community.”
A raffle will take place every Wednesday at 2 p.m. from June 23 to July 28 on the County of Santa Clara Public Health Department’s Instagram Live (@scc_publichealth) feed. The full schedule for drawing dates and tickets is below. The schedule is subject to change.
All tickets are for the SAP Center in San Jose except the Golden State Warriors tickets and Trevor Noah tickets, which are for events being held at the Chase Center in San Francisco.
