RENO, NV — August 19, 2021
Today, Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak was joined by Eric Edelstein, president of the Reno Aces and Greater Nevada Field at the stadium to announce the seventh round of winners for Vax Nevada Days, a public health incentive program launched in July.
A total of 204 vaccinated individuals aged 12 and older were drawn as winners in the seventh Vax Nevada Days drawing. Some recipients who live in the Reno area were in attendance for this week’s live reveal, but winners are located throughout the state.
The last Vax Nevada Days announcement will take place Thursday, Aug. 26, when a $1 million grand-prize winner will be named.
“As Nevada and the world continue to battle COVID-19 and the Delta variant, we are in an all-hands-on-deck situation. Every Nevadan has a vital role to play in ending this pandemic, most importantly by protecting themselves, their families and their community by getting a COVID-19 vaccine,” Gov. Sisolak said. “We appreciate all the work the Reno Aces organization has conducted to promote COVID-19 vaccination and community health.”
