The State of Alaska has recently opened up eligibility for the COVID-19 vaccine to many more people. If you’re ready to get immunized, it may be your turn. The newly eligible groups are:

  • Persons aged 55 and up
  • Persons aged 16 and up who:
    • Are essential workers; or
    • Are “high risk” or “might be high risk” for severe COVID-19 illness according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) or their provider; or
    • Live in a multigenerational household

Previously eligible groups can continue to get immunized against COVID-19 if they have not already done so. This includes health care workers, people age 65 and above, those living and working in congregate settings, and pandemic response workers. See more details and eligibility criteria on the State of Alaska Vaccine Eligibility webpage, or take this eligibility quiz.

Juneau’s COVID-19 vaccine clinic organizers are Bartlett Regional Hospital, Central Council of the Tlingit and Haida Indian Tribes of Alaska, Juneau Public Health Center, SEARHC, and the City and Borough of Juneau. Learn more details about the March 15-20 clinic here.
