Six Reasons To Get Vaccinated 

On Wednesday, March 24th, 2021, in the web-based Science Echo Forum, the state's Dr. Joe McLaughlin listed the reasons everyone in Alaska should help their community and get vaccinated. 

Benefits Of Getting Vaccinated

Excellent Protection You get protected against COVID-19 illness.

Superlative Protection You get super protection against severe COVID-19 illness and death.

No "Long COVID" If you don’t get COVID-19, you won’t get long COVID. 

More Robust Immunity Current evidence suggests that vaccinated persons develop more robust immunity than most people do through natural infection.

   Economics Vaccine is free, but getting COVID-19 can be costly, including missing days from work and potential costly emergency room and hospital bills.

You Can Get Up Close & Personal If you’re fully vaccinated you don’t need to quarantine after coming into close contact with infected persons. You can safely interact with other fully vaccinated persons.

We Can Open Back Up The faster Alaska reaches high vaccination coverage, the faster we are able to open the economy back up – every vaccination counts.

Safe COVID-19 vaccines do not change or interact with your DNA in any way.


Mild Side Effects A COVID-19 vaccine can cause mild side effects after the first or second dose, including: pain/redness/swelling where the shot was given, fever, fatigue, headache, muscle pain, chills, joint aches.

On Friday, April 2nd, Dolly got her second shot and thanked Vanderbilt University and she wrote, "Dolly gets a (second) dose of her own medicine."

Famous for her great song writing, business 
acumen and extraordinary talent, it turns out Dolly is also a philanthropist. She donated money towards the development of the Moderna vaccine.
