Important notes before making an appointment:

- The clinic is for Alaska residents currently living in Juneau who have physically been in the state for at least 5 days prior to March 15-20. If you have returned to the state within 5 days of the clinic dates, and therefore strict social distancing per CBJ ordinance, do not make an appointment. Strict social distancing cannot be maintained at the clinic.
- If you signed up for the March 12-13 clinic waitlist, you are NOT automatically signed up for this March 15-20 clinic. You will need to make an appointment for the March 15-20 clinic to be guaranteed a vaccine. If you secure an appointment for the March 15-20 clinic, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to be removed from the March 12-13 waitlist.
- If you’re making an appointment on behalf of someone who doesn’t speak English, please email email@example.com call 586-6000 ahead of their clinic appointment so translation services can be arranged.
People with appointments should bring a photo ID to the clinic. After checking in and getting the vaccine, you’ll be monitored for 15 minutes for any adverse reactions. Second-dose appointments will be made at the clinic. Everyone is required to wear a mask.
