The state will be holding five raffles on June 4, 11, 18 and July 7. The last day to qualify for the draw is June 30.

The State will select the winner using the vaccine registers of the Colorado Immunization Information System (CIIS). Officials say it may take a few days for the information to enter CIIS, so Coloradans should try to get the vaccine as soon as possible to qualify.

Several Coloradans tell CBS4 they were unable to locate their immunization records in the state database. The CIIS search page requires a name, date of birth, gender, and phone number using the same spelling as the entry.

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment made the following statement to CBS4:

“We are aware that some people have difficulty verifying their immunization information through the Colorado Immunization Information System (CIIS) online portal. This is most likely due to the fact that the information provided by the provider does not exactly match what individuals enter into the portal. When searching on the portal, the following fields should match exactly what the provider entered: first name, last name, date of birth, gender and mobile phone number and / or email address. So if someone goes by John Smith but their healthcare provider is called Jonathan Smith, this is what they should use to research. Additionally, if a vendor misspelled a name or had a typo in the entry, there will be no match.

“Although there may be a slight mismatch between vaccinations and providers entering information into the system, we are confident that the majority of providers enter information in a timely manner. 89% of all COVID doses were reported to CIIS within 72 hours of the date the vaccine was administered.

“People who have entered their information into the portal and believe they have entered it exactly as the supplier has done should contact their supplier to ensure that their information has been entered accurately and to confirm how it has been reported. at CIIS. If this is not possible, they can contact the CIIS Help Desk to verify that they are in the system and / or to update their contact details on their CIIS record.

“Colorado Comeback Cash draws are intended to provide an additional reward for being vaccinated against COVID-19. Several states are using this approach, and in Ohio, the longest running pattern, there has been a 28% increase in vaccinations.

“We look forward to seeing increases in our immunization rates as well and are working with vaccine suppliers to track the increases. There is a slight lag in reporting vaccinations to CIIS, so we will have a better idea of ​​the increase in a few days. We encourage the Coloradans to get vaccinated as soon as possible so they can be eligible for the next five designs. The winners will be announced on June 4, June 11, June 18 and June 25, and the final winner will be announced on July 7. The Coloradans must be vaccinated by June 30 to qualify to win on July 7. “
