There are 9 days left to enter. Alaskans who receive their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine now through Oct. 30, are eligible to enter the Alaska Chamber’s Give AK a Shot drawing for a chance to win $49,000. The next weekly drawing entries are due this Saturday, Oct. 23. Newly vaccinated Alaskans are only eligible to win in the week they are vaccinated.
