CHARLESTON, WV (WOWK)—West Virginia’s governor, Jim Justice declared the first lucky winners of the “Do it for Babydog” vaccine lottery on Sunday, June 20, which also happened to be both Father’s Day and West Virginia Day.

Justice announced the winners of the $1,000,000 cash prize, two custom outfitted trucks, two full four-year scholarships to any public institution in the state, 25 weekend getaways to West Virginia State Parks, five lifetime hunting licenses, five lifetime fishing licenses, five custom hunting rifles and five custom hunting shotguns at 1:00 p.m. from the West Virginia State Capitol Complex in Charleston during the state’s 158th birthday celebration.

Before the main celebration got underway, there was a free COVID-19 vaccination clinic on Kanawha Boulevard in front of the West Virginia State Capitol Building between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. Attendees didn’t need an appointment, but needed to bring a valid state-issued form of identification and a recent utility bill with a West Virginia address. Both Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson vaccines were available.

The event also included food trucks and other vendors, and a West Virginia-themed airstream designed by the State Department of Tourism will be on display.

The ceremony began at 1:00 p.m. on the Lincoln Plaza side of the Capitol Building. It was during this time that the governor announced the conclusion of the state-wide mask mandate and went go on to announce the prize winners. The ceremony was live-streamed on the governor’s YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook, and it was also streamed right here on wowktv.com.

And yes, Babydog herself was on-site to meet West Virginians in attendance.
