LADUE, Mo. (KMOV.com) – Ladue Pharmacy is holding a sweepstakes for those who receive their COVID-19 vaccine there or at Millbrook Pharmacy.
The sweepstakes on the pharmacy’s website states anyone at least 18 years old who gets their first dose of the vaccine at either location between July 19 and August 2 will be eligible to sign up. The top prize is a $1,000 shopping spree at Ladue Pharmacy. Other prizes include a $100 gift card to Ken Miesner’s Flower Shoppe, custom monogrammed SWIG stainless steel water bottle from The Nook and a $25 gift card to Companion Bakery.
Ladue Pharmacy co-owner Rick Williams tells News 4 they want to do everything they can to help bring COVID-19 vaccination numbers up.
"We've seen around the country where other municipalities [and] states are doing promotions, lotteries, things like that," said Williams. "So, we thought we'd sort of make it fun and something to try to get more people to get vaccinated."
Those who already received the COVID-19 vaccine at Ladue Pharmacy can enter a separate sweepstakes for a chance to win a $10, $25 or $50 gift card. Since starting the vaccination sweepstakes, Williams says new people have come in to get their first dose.
"Ultimately, my hope is that whatever we can do to help, that COVID-19 within our community will become managed again," said Williams.
