Two upcoming vaccine clinics in the Valley and Auke Bay

April 12, 2021 – News

UPDATE 4/13/21: The Friday, April 16, clinic at St. Brendan’s Episcopal Church will be offering the Pfizer vaccine instead of the originally planned Johnson & Johnson vaccine. This change was made due to guidance from the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services, which was made in accordance with a joint CDC and FDA statement on the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine. Out of an abundance of caution, vaccine providers in Alaska have been asked to pause all use of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine immediately.

Two upcoming COVID-19 vaccine clinics are happening in the Mendenhall Valley and Auke Bay – St. Brendan’s Episcopal Church this Friday, April 16, and University of Alaska Southeast April 22-April 24. Appointments are strongly encouraged. Go to juneau.org/vaccine or call 586-6000 to make an appointment. Walk-ins are welcome to the extent vaccine is available.
