Texarkana Area COVID By-The-Numbers for May 26
Governor Asa Hutchinson announced on Tuesday that Arkansans will have an incentive to get vaccinated starting July 1. Next Tuesday, residents of Arkansas who get vaccinated can show their vaccination card to receive a $20 Arkansas Lottery Scratch-off Ticket that could win them up to $1,000,000. You do have to be at least 18 years old to participate in this incentive.
If you don't want the Scratch-off ticket you could take the Hunting and Fishing option. When you get your vaccine shot you will be given two certificates, one is for fishing, the other for a small game hunting license that can be used wherever hunting and fishing licenses are sold. Remember if you come over to the Texas-side here in Texarkana to get vaccinated those incentives are not part of the deal in Texas.
Just ask wherever you make your appointment for the vaccine.
