ANCHORAGE-  Today, Senator Cathy Giessel statewide immunization bill was signed into law.

The bill will provide lower cost, if not free, vaccinations that come from the Center for Disease Control 's recommended vaccination list.
While in session, the bill received tremendous support from the medical community, senior citizens and Alaskans everywhere but opposition stemmed from pharmaceutical companies.
