The state’s COVID-19 vaccination incentive campaign today announced the five winners of its second week of prize giveaways.

The five new winners include Sarah Delgadillo of Oahu, who won 100,000 HawaiianMiles from Hawaiian Airlines; Gary Oliveira of Maui, who won 100,000 Marriott Bonvoy Points; Jon Bynes of Oahu, who won two round-trip tickets on Alaska Airlines; Brent Muraoka of Oahu, who won a round-trip ticket on Southwest Airlines; and Alan Matsui of Oahu, who also won a round-trip ticket on Southwest Airlines.

The campaign, which was launched June 4, offers Hawaii residents ages 18 and up who get at least one COVID-19 vaccine by June 30 a chance to register to win a smorgasbord of prizes, including the round-trip tickets, a trip to Las Vegas for two, a two-night stay at the Kahala Hotel & Resort, along with gift cards, Zippy’s for a year, and other winnings.

Accuity LLP, an independent accounting firm, is providing official contest verification services to ensure winners are selected fairly and according to the official contest rules.

The first two winners of HawaiianMiles and Alaska Airlines round-trip tickets were announced last week. Another set of winners will be announced next Wednesday.

Nearly 20 businesses have donated prizes to the campaign, and more than 80 businesses are offering discounts and deals throughout the month of June for vaccinated individuals.

The #HIGotVaccinated campaign is supported by Adventist Health Castle, ConnectWorks, H&B Marketing, Hawaii Pacific Health, Humana, Kaiser Permanente Hawaii, Maui Health, MDX Hawaii, The Queen’s Health Systems, and Hawaii’s business community.

As of today, more than 1.6 million doses had been administered in the state; 57.2% of Hawaii’s population of about 1.4 million have completed vaccinations, while 62% have received at least one dose.

The COVID-19 vaccine is free at hundreds of sites across the state, including local pharmacies, hospitals, and pop-up clinics, including one this Saturday at Honolulu Zoo and the Honolulu Stadium Swap Meet.
