HARLINGEN, Texas (KVEO) — CVS Health announced its #OneStepCloser sweepstakes, created to encourage COVID-19 vaccinations.

The sweepstakes include free cruises, tropical vacations, a VIP trip to Super Bowl LVI, gift cards and more.

Starting June 1, individuals 18 and over that received or plan to receive the COVID-19 vaccine through CVS Health can enter.

According to a release, the prizes will be given out through weekly drawings and grand prizes over a six-week period.

“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,” said Dr. Kyu Rhee, Senior Vice President and Chief Medical Officer of CVS Health in the release.

CVS Health said an alternative method of entry will also be offered, and CVS Health colleagues meeting requirements can also paticipate.
