CVS is following in United Airlines footsteps by offering perks to people who are vaccinated against the coronavirus.
On Thursday, the health care company announced that it has partnered with companies to launch what it’s calling the #OneStepCloser sweepstakes.
The sweepstakes — which includes more than 1,000 prizes — will launch on June 1. Winners will be selected in weekly drawings over a six-week period, according to the CVS announcement.

To be eligible to enter, people who are 18 or older have to have received, or plan to receive, their COVID-19 vaccine through CVS Health before the sweepstakes close on July 10.
In its announcement, CVS said it decided to launch the contest as a way to encourage people who are hesitant about the vaccine to get it and to "provide a positive reminder of the activities that are possible once vaccinated."

"We're grateful for the millions of people who’ve received one of the well over 17 million doses we’ve administered at CVS Health, but we have a long way to go," Dr. Kyu Rhee, CVS Health’s senior vice president and one of the company’s chief medical officer, said in a statement. "Getting as much of the population fully vaccinated will bring us one step closer to all the things we’ve missed during the past 14 months, and keep our country moving in the right direction."
