Free cruises, tropical vacations, cash prizes and a VIP trip to Super Bowl LVI are among the prizes eligible customers who received or plan to receive a COVID-19 vaccination through CVS Health could win starting next month.

The #OneStepCloser sweepstakes will start Tuesday, June 1, according to a news release from CVS Health. In a statement, CVS Health Chief Medical Officer and Senior Vice President Dr. Kyu Rhee said the company has administered more than 17 million COVID-19 vaccines.

“But we have a long way to go,” Dr. Rhee said. “Getting as much of the population fully vaccinated will bring us one step closer to all the things we’ve missed during the past 14 months, and keep our country moving in the right direction.”

According to recent CDC data, 17.6% of adults 18 years and over are hesitant about receiving a COVID-19 vaccine, the news release stated.

Eligible customers ages 18 and older who received or plan to receive a COVID-19 vaccination through CVS Health may choose to enter the #OneStepCloser sweepstakes for an opportunity to win one of over a thousand prizes through weekly drawings and grand prizes over a six-week period.
