People 12 to 17 who get the vaccine will be eligible for a lottery to receive a full four-year scholarship to a state university, "including tuition, room and board, and books", the governor announced. But truly, the real waste at this point in the pandemic - when the vaccine is readily available to anyone who want it - is a life lost to COVID-19.

"It's time to end the health orders. You followed the protocols, you've done what we asked you to do". After that, a new victor will be drawn each Wednesday for five weeks, for the same amount each time, DeWine said.

The address is expected to cover the state's plan moving forward, and potentially dropping certain restrictions.


Earlier this month, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy announced that any resident who gets their first vaccine dose in May can get a free beer if they take their vaccination card to a participating brewery, dubbing it the "Shot and a Beer" program.

Ohioans aged 18 and older will be entered into a weekly drawing with a prize of up to $1 million. What you have done has really worked!

In a separate drawing for OH adults who have received at least their first dose of the vaccine, the prize will be $1 million.


Finally, the governor announced that Ohio Department of Health Director Stephanie McCloud will remove all public health orders, with exception of nursing homes and assisted living facilities, on June 2.

"And now, we have a powerful weapon that is nearly 100 percent effective in beating the virus", Governor DeWine said in his remarks. "You've bravely fought this virus", said Governor DeWine. And now, everyone 12 and over can use it to protect themselves - to put an invisible shield of protection around themselves. "Everyone can now control their own health-their own destiny".
