Alaska Opens Up Vaccinations To Education Workers Regardless Of Age


State Gets Additional Vaccines

Move Will Help Schools Stay Open

Alaska DHSS issued a morning press release Wednesday, February 10th saying that Alaska is set to receive "additional vaccine" in February and that in estimating March's vaccine allocation "we have decided to move forward with this large tier."

This new group includes Alaskans who are age 50 and above and who have a high-risk medical condition OR work in an essential job around others, plus many education workers regardless of age, some COVID-19 response workers and anyone who lives or works in certain congregate settings.

Governor Dunleavy said “Our Elders are our most vulnerable population, and it was important to allow them time to get vaccinated these past few weeks. Many of the seniors who wanted to get vaccinated have done so, and now it’s time to open up vaccinations to a new group of Alaskans.” 

Those previously eligible – people 65 years and above and most health care workers (Phase 1a and Phase 1b Tier 1) – will still be able to get vaccinated if they have not already done so.  

DHSS Continued "While we know this next group is large, and there will be more demand than supply at first, this gives communities more flexibility to move quickly. The demand will be met over time as more vaccine becomes available.”
