Reno, NV - July 29, 2021
Today, Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak was joined by representatives from Immunize Nevada and Renown Health CEO Dr. Tony Slonim at Hometown Health in south Reno to announce the fourth round of winners for Vax Nevada Days, a public health incentive program launched last month.
A total of 226 vaccinated individuals aged 12 and older were drawn as winners in the fourth Vax Nevada Days drawing. Some recipients who live in the Reno and Sparks areas were in attendance for this week’s live reveal, but winners are located throughout the state.
Winners will be announced every Thursday through Aug. 26, when a $1 million grand-prize winner will be named.
“Doctors and nurses across the State, and those right here at Renown, have truly been on the frontlines of COVID-19 with very little breaks to take rest,” Gov. Sisolak said. “I am grateful we now have an incredibly effective tool at our disposal to help fight this virus and keep Nevadans from catching COVID-19: the COVID-19 vaccine. Week four of Vax Nevada Days celebrates everyday Nevadans who are protecting themselves and helping to make community life possible again by choosing the COVID-19 vaccination and its life-saving, health-preserving benefits.”
The following is a list of winners’ names and the amounts they were rewarded that were read during tonight’s event. Other winners for this week’s drawings preferred not to have their names announced or are still being contacted to claim their prize, following the procedures laid out in the official Vax Nevada Day rules.
