CHARLESTON, W.Va (WDTV) - Governor Justice announced the first round of winners in the “Do it for Babydog: Save a Life, Change your Life” Sweepstakes. This initiative to encourage West Virginians to get vaccinated against Covid-19.

The governor started off by thanking residents for doing their part to keep the state together during the pandemic.

He said, there was still work to do with just 44% of the population vaccinated according to the latest update from the DHHR.

The governor said that while vaccinated West Virginians could be entered in a drawing to win prizes. Non-vaccinated West Virginians were in a drawing of their own.

“You’re in a drawing right now. If you choose not to get vaccinated and the drawing is the drawing for your life. You know when it really boils right down to it. You’re in a drawing every single day, if you choose not to get vaccinated,” he said.

The governor went on to announce the winners for the first round of the “Babydog Sweepstakes.” 11 of those winners were from our area.
