    Alberta Premier Jason Kenney has announced Open for Summer Lottery, three $1 million dollars prizes, for eligible residents who have received at least their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

    The first $1-million prize is up for grabs to any Albertan 18 or older and registration will close one week after the province immunizes 70 per cent of the eligible population with one dose.

    The province said anyone 18 and older who received their first dose outside the province is also eligible, as long as they submit proof of vaccination to AHS and meet the other criteria.

    The winner of the first $1 million will be announced when Stage 3 of Alberta’s Open for Summer plan begins.

    The other two $1-million lotteries will be held throughout the summer. Kenney said the second $1-million prize will be handed out in August to anyone 18 and older who is fully vaccinated with two doses.

    The third prize will be handed out in late September, also for those 18 and older who are double-dosed with COVID-19 vaccine.

    The province said people will only need to enter once for all three draws. Proof of vaccination will be required once a winner is selected.
