Why I got vaccinated: Dylan Sowa

May 14, 2021 – FYI

“I got vaccinated because I want to help get this whole thing over and get back to normal. I’m looking forward to traveling, hanging out with friends, and not having to wear a mask when I play hockey.”

Dylan Sowa, age 14, is an eighth grader at Montessori Borealis. He got the first dose of Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine at SEARHC on Thursday, May 13. He encourages all his friends and peers to get one, too: “Just go get it; it will only help.”

Public Health, Bartlett Regional Hospital, and CBJ are holding vaccine clinics today for youth ages 12-18 at Juneau-Douglas High School: Yadaa.at Kalé and Thunder Mountain High School 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. If you didn’t sign up your kid, the clinics are also open to walk-ins.
