Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear on Friday announced the next winner of the state's "Shot at a Million" program.

According to Gov. Beshear, Ginger Schultz from Louisville, Kentucky, is the next $1 million winner of the lottery-style vaccine incentive.

"I've never experienced anything like this," Ginger said. "It's shocking. You just don't really think you're gonna win."

Previous Shot at a Million Winner: Patricia L. Short from the Lexington / Winchester area

Three adult Kentuckians who have been vaccinated against COVID-19 will each win $1 million through the program. Since two winners have already been announced, only one winner remains.

If you haven't entered to win and would still like to, there's still time. To enter for the last Shot at a Million drawing, you must submit your entry by Aug. 26. The winner will then be contacted on Aug. 26, and the public will be informed of who won on Aug. 27.

You can visit the Shot at a Million website for more information on the contest and to enter the drawing.

The Kentucky Department for Public Health is using a portion of its federal Coronavirus Relief Funds to fund the "Shot at a Million" initiative.

We're waking up to dry and cold conditions this Tuesday morning. As we head into the afternoon, temperatures won't rise much. Highs are only going to be in the mid to upper 30s. Skies will be mostly cloudy with a chance of flurries overnight. It won't be a big snow by any stretch, but you could see some flurries flying Tuesday night into Wednesday morning around the Tri-State. Don't expect more than a dusting, with greater chances falling north of I-64.
