Rock the Shot: Statewide Drawing
Frequently Asked Questions
How can I win?
The Rock the Shot promotion is designed to encourage Connecticut residents to get vaccinated and reward those that have done so.
Any Connecticut resident 18 years of age and older who has received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine may enter the statewide drawing.
If you have not yet received your COVID-19 vaccine, you can receive it now and then enter the Rock the Shot promotional drawing! Visit ct.gov/covidvaccine to find a vaccine location near you. There are hundreds of clinics across the state that are offering same-day and walk-up appointments.
One you have been vaccinated, you can complete the entry form: click here to enter. On the entry form, you will be given the opportunity to indicate which concerts you are interested in.
Winners will be selected weekly each Thursday throughout the month of July, beginning Thursday 7/8.
In addition to the statewide drawing, there will also be dedicated clinics throughout the month of July where the first individuals to get vaccinated will receive concert tickets instantly once they receive their vaccine. More details about these clinics will be posted at ct.gov/rocktheshot.
What do I win?
Winners of the statewide drawing will receive 2 premium tickets (for instance, front row seats or admission to the general admission section close to the stage) to one of the shows participating in the program.

How is Connecticut validating that individuals who win have been vaccinated?
By submitting the entry form, entrants are affirming that they have received at least a first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. Submission of false information in the entry form is subject to the penalties of false statements pursuant to Conn. Gen. Stat. §53a-157b.
In addition, all winning entries will be verified. Participants who enter the drawing will consent to have the Connecticut Department of Public Health verify their vaccination status using the State’s Immunization Information System.
How are winners selected?
All entrants who indicated interest in a given show will be entered into the drawing for that concert. Winners will be selected at random from among the entrants. Each eligible person who enters has an equal chance at winning.
How will I be contacted if I win?
You will be contacted through the email or phone number provided in the entry form.
How will I pick up or receive my tickets?
If you win, you will collect your tickets at the box office on the night of the show. You must show a valid ID in order to collect the tickets.
What happens if I can’t attend the concert I win for?
Unfortunately, winning the drawing is not transferable to an alternative. The Department of Public Health will make the tickets available to another lucky winner if you are not able to collect them.
