Gov. Jay Inslee has claimed the lottery increased vaccinations.

The governor tweeted last week that vaccination rates across all ages were up 24% thanks to the lottery. The number comes from the state Department of Health.

The state Department of Health also said 69.6% of Washington residents 16 and older have had at least one shot of a vaccine as of Friday, July 9.

The state formally reopened at the end of June, rolling back most indoor capacity limits and social-distancing guidelines. Unvaccinated people are still required to wear masks in indoor and in some outdoor settings. Masks are still required for everyone — regardless of vaccination status — on public transit and in schools, health-care facilities, long-term-care facilities and child-care centers.
