The “Your Shot to Fly” campaign, in support of the Biden administration’s effort to encourage more people to get the Covid-19 vaccine, is open for entries until June 22.
The airline is giving away 30 pairs of roundtrip tickets to any of its global destinations through June 22. On July 1, five winners will receive a full year of free travel with a friend (up to 26 roundtrips), anywhere United flies.
To be eligible, you need to be at least 18 years or older, and a US resident who’s received at least one shot of a vaccine.
Participants are required to upload their Moderna, Pfizer, or Johnson & Johnson vaccination document to United airline’s mobile app.
“We’re proud to do our part to incentivize people to get their shot,” United CEO Scott Kirby said in a press release.
“Thanks to the vaccine, more and more destinations are opening up for travel—and we know our customers are eager to fly. We’re excited to give people one more reason to get vaccinated so they can reunite with friends and family or take that long-awaited vacation which all could be just one shot away.”
The sweepstakes is the latest in a trend of US companies encouraging vaccinations among its customers.
In Ohio, interest in the vaccine appears to have skyrocketed this month after state officials created the Ohio Vax-a-Million sweepstakes, a $1 million lottery open to state residents who’ve received at least one shot of a vaccine.
Elsewhere, Target began offering $5 coupons to those getting vaccinated at CVS pharmacies inside its stores nationwide.
A CNN poll in April found that 26% of Americans said they would not get the Covid-19 vaccine.
Nearly 590,000 Americans have lost their lives to the virus.
