There’s still time to win big in ‘Vax For The Win’ contest

Golden Valley Health Centers wants to remind you about the State of California’s “Vax for The Win” incentive program for those who have received their COVID-19 vaccine and for those planning on getting theirs.

There is still time!

With recent news of 11 percent drop in COVID-19 vaccinations across the United States, Golden Valley Health Centers (GVHC) has continued to push even harder. A big help to the efforts came to us in a way of a CASH incentive program developed by and paid for by the State of California. Everyone 12 years of age and older, with at least one COVID-19 dose, in the state of California will be automatically entered to win big on $50,000 Fridays. This Friday, June 11, 15 people will win $50,000. Ten winners will be selected on June 15 to receive $1.5 million each!

To ensure that those who live in rural areas get access to the vaccine, and a chance to win $50,000 and up to $1.5 million dollars, GVHC now offers walk-in appointments at many of their clinical locations and have also setup two large scale vaccination events in rural areas such as Turlock and Gustine.

GVHC’s partnerships with both the Assyrian American Civic Club in Turlock and the Simply Grace Fellowship in Gustine will help extend the reach in our local communities. Organizers are grateful for all our community partners for our continued expansion and dedication to fighting the COVID-19 virus.

The two upcoming vaccine clinics are open to the public free of charge to anyone 12 years of age and older. VAX FOR THE WIN© is eligible for those who are age 12 and older and have received at least a first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

  • Simply Grace Fellowship in Gustine Ca. will be hosting a large-scale vaccination event on Saturday, June 12, from 8 a.m. – noon at 894 Sycamore Ave. Gustine.
  • Assyrian American Civic Club will be hosting a large-scale vaccination event on Monday June 21, from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. at 2618 N Golden State Blvd. Turlock.
