“We started in June of this year, starting to push the idea of people being able to win prizes from the Belize Tourism Board as an incentive for getting vaccinated. Now we know that the true incentive is for their health, the health of their loved ones and the nation on a whole. But we wanted to add an additional incentive and so we reached out to some of our partners and they fully supported us and that’s how the whole idea of this vaccination raffle came about. We did a series of weekly raffles where every Friday, we would choose a serial code. And I want to elaborate that we had to do it this way because every single person who got vaccinated over the age of eighteen years old were automatically entered into this raffle. So we had to lean on the Ministry of Health and Wellness to provide us with the serial codes on a weekly basis. So once we got that listing from them, we did an automatic random draw where the codes were chosen and the winners were announced. Now we do not have the names of the persons that go along with the specific serial codes so what we need for them to do is to check the B.T.B. Facebook page, verify if the code that was announced matches the number that is on the front of your vaccination card. If it does, you are definitely a winner and we appeal to you to reach out to us because we have fabulous prizes Duane and we want to make sure that each and every person who has won is able to claim their prize. We also added in extras like beachfront dinners, sunset cruise, couples massage; that type of thing. So like I said, they are awesome packages and we just want people to know – check your vaccination card, verify what your serial code is and then crosscheck it with the numbers that you find on the B.T.B. Facebook page. Once you are a winner, we will make sure you get your prize as soon as possible.”

 

The winning serial codes are: 81333, 15507, 91638, 109573, 128218 and 135131.
