Ohio’s governor is no stranger to criticism. Moves he has ordered or has approved since the start of the pandemic more than a year ago have resulted in criticism from many quarters including law makers in his own Republican Party. So it probably comes as no surprise to Mike DeWine that his decision to authorize a first-of-it’s-kind vaccination promotion lottery is drawing fire from some who claim it is a poor use of federal government Coronavirus funds sent to Ohio. Our Governor apparently understands at least 1 thing about Ohioans. We love a chance to win anything especially cash or large prizes. Response during the opening day of the state’s Vaxamillion lottery promotion yesterday likely surprised everyone involved, with thousands of entries received by phone or on line. There are reports that the chance to win one of 5 1-million dollar cash prizes and 5 full-ride 4-year college scholarships has sparked an uptick in the number of Ohioans who’re getting vaccinated too. As efforts to bring the pandemic to an end continue, The governor and state health officials must feel that if the lottery offering convinces more Ohioans to roll up their sleeves and get vaccinated, then everybody wins. That’s the way I see it.
