Frequently Asked Questions
What qualifies you to win a prize?
Delawareans vaccinated in the state of Delaware will be entered into a larger raffle for a shot to win high-ticket items. Those who will be entered in the raffle include:
· All vaccinated Delawareans ages 12-17
· 18+ and received your first vaccination after May 24
All Delawareans vaccinated in Delaware will be eligible for the final prize of $302,000 and two low-number license plates, to be announced on June 30.
How will winners be chosen?
DEWins! will pull anonymized numbers in DelVax, Delaware’s vaccination registration system. The Delaware Lottery will take those secure codes and put them through a randomizer, generating a winner to be matched back with the DelVax system. All state employees involved in the planning process will be prohibited from entering the contest. No one other than the Division of Public Health (who already possesses vaccination data) will have access to anyone’s protected health care information or become aware of someone’s vaccination status without appropriate consent and authorization.
