Teens who get vaccinated are now eligible to be put into a raffle to receive a scholarship for full tuition to any college.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo said this new incentive is targeted toward those between 12 and 17 who haven't been vaccinated yet. He said this age group is the lowest percent of the population vaccinated so far.
Teens who receive the Pfizer vaccine will be thrown into the raffle.
Every Wednesday for the next five weeks, 10 winners will be chosen a week during a random drawing to win a scholarship that includes full tuition and room and board to any public college or university for four years.
The incentive will run through July 7.
Parents can fill out a form to be notified when the raffle drawing begins.
Those over 18 years old who haven't been vaccinated still have one more day for a chance to win a $5 million jackpot.
