The chance to win a free dinner at the governor’s mansion was among new incentives to get more people vaccinated against COVID-19, announced on Wednesday by Gov. Phil Murphy at Island Beach State Park.
New Jersey adults (18 and older) who have received at least one dose of the vaccine in-state by the end of May can enter online to win dinner, along with a guest, with the governor and First Lady Tammy Murphy.
The meal would be hosted at the winner’s choice of either Drumthwacket in Princeton or the governor’s Shore residence at Island Beach State Park, Murphy said.
A free, full season “Vax Pass” also has been announced for the state’s parks, a $50 value, for any resident who has received at least their first shot by July 4. That includes individuals already vaccinated, who can begin registering online for the incentive starting next week, on May 27 at a new website not yet live: nj.gov/vaxandvisit.
Out of the state’s 51 state parks, 18 require a parking or entrance fee, including Island Beach State Park and Cheesequake State Park.
