Starting at noon on January 6, elder Alaskans can schedule an appointment for the roll out of coronavirus vaccinations by visiting covidvax.alaska.gov.

“All clinics who have received COVID-19 vaccine should continue to vaccinate the remaining health care workers from Phase 1a who wish to be vaccinated, but we are also excited to open up appointments for Alaskans who are 65 years of age or older,” says State of Alaska Chief Medical Officer Dr. Anne Zink. 

New appointments will be added regularly as more vaccine providers sign up and more vaccine is available, according to a press release. Additional information about the COVID-19 vaccine and Alaska’s distribution plans may be found at Covidvax.Alaska.gov.
