United Airlines is offering a chance to win free flights if you upload your vaccination record to its app by June 22. The new sweepstakes -- Your Shot To Fly --  applies to MileagePlus members. After uploading your record, you're automatically entered to win a round trip flight or free flights for a year.

The company will choose five grand prize winners on July 1 for a year of free flights. In addition, 30 people will win a round trip flight for two in any class.

Your Shot To Fly is the latest initiative amid the national push to get people vaccinated. Over the last few months, states have rolled out incentives like the multimillion-dollar lotteries in Ohio, New York and Maryland. In addition to monetary prizes, companies and brands have offered perks like free beer and doughnuts for folks who can produce a vaccination record. 

As of May 24, almost 40% of the US population has been fully vaccinated
