In an effort to get more residents vaccinated, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is offering an incentive.

According to FOX News, starting Monday, every New Yorker who gets a shot at one of the state’s vaccination centers will leave with a scratch-off ticket that could net them $5 million, Cuomo announced Thursday. He’s calling the program “Vax and Scratch.”

“If you were undecided about getting a vaccine or dubious about getting a vaccine, now you have an added bonus,” Cuomo says. “The chances of winning something are one in nine. It’s a situation where everyone wins.”
