Connecticut is now offering a chance to win concert tickets to any residents 18 or older who have received at least one COVID-19 vaccination.
The "Rock the Shot" campaign, announced by Gov. Ned Lamont Friday, is an effort to encourage more people to get vaccinated against the coronavirus. The hope from the governor is that the idea of winning concert tickets may incentivize Connecticut's young adults to get vaccinated. The state has seen a drop-off in the numbers of young adults seeking out the vaccine.
“Getting vaccinated is incredibly important to protecting your families, friends, neighbors, and communities as a whole, and we are launching this Rock the Shot campaign to stress – especially to the youngest adults in our state – just how important and safe getting vaccinated is,” Gov. Lamont said.
Those who are already vaccinated can register online for a chance to win two tickets for a pair of premium seats at several concerts.
Drawings will be held weekly on Thursdays beginning July 8. Winners will be notified once their vaccination status is verified.
If you are not vaccinated yet but want tickets, be one of the first 24 people to get vaccinated at select clinics, which will be announced soon, and you will recieve a pair of tickets to one of the concerts.
Tickets are available to the following concerts as part of the "Rock the Shot" campaign:
Xfinity Theatre - Hartford
- 7/16 – Luke Bryan
- 8/21 – Thomas Rhett
- 9/3 – Lil Baby
- 9/29 – Jonas Brothers
- 10/8 – Florida Georgia Line
HHC Amphitheater - Bridgeport
- 8/20 – Brothers Osborne
