Alaska opens vaccination effort to travelers

As of June 1st, travelers to the state can receive vaccinations at one of three Alaska airports in Anchorage, Fairbanks and Juneau, in addition to clinics and pharmacies across the state. The sites are open to anyone, including Alaskans, workers, and visitors. Airport vaccination appointments must be made and can be done so through www.alaska.covidsecureapp.com.
News of the state's airport vaccination effort is appearing in media worldwide, which could spur travel to Alaska as potential visitors are considering tying a vaccination in with their trip of a lifetime. Read the details about airport vaccinations here.
