Santa Clara County and the city of San Jose are raffling off more than 100 tickets to upcoming concerts, events and other prizes to anyone who gets a COVID-19 vaccine at select county-run vaccination sites in the next few weeks.
It is the county’s latest incentive to encourage more vaccinations.
Residents can win tickets to Golden State Warriors games or concerts featuring Harry Styles, the Weeknd, Bad Bunny, Justin Bieber, Marc Anthony, Evanescence and many other artists.
Anyone can enter the raffle by getting vaccinated at the county-run site at Overfelt High School, the County Fairgrounds Expo Hall, Emmanuel Baptist Church, Valley Specialty Center, Mountain View Community Center, Levi’s Stadium (through June 24) or Gilroy High School (through July 7). Pop-up clinics are not included in the raffle.
Different prizes will be raffled off every week and each Wednesday eight to 10 winners will be announced.
Those who have already been vaccinated also have a chance to win some of the raffles as well if they accompany an unvaccinated person to one of the aforementioned sites and bring proof of vaccine.
“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 Santa Clara County Public Health Department’s Instagram Live (@scc_publichealth) feed.
All event tickets are for the SAP Center in San Jose except the Golden State Warriors tickets and Trevor Noah tickets, which are for events held at Chase Center in San Francisco.
