Travelers to Alaska can get free vaccination against COVID-19

Starting June 1, travelers to Alaska will be offered free vaccines against COVID-19 at airports as part of a US state initiative to restart its tourism industry.

Travelers 12 years of age and older arriving at four airports – Ted Stevens International Airport in Anchorage, Fairbanks International Airport, Juneau International Airport and Ketchikan International Airport – can receive the free vaccine upon arrival.

Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson and Moderna vaccines will be available. However, while Pfizer vaccines have been approved for people 12 years of age and older, Johnson & Johnson and Moderna vaccines have only been approved for people 18 years of age and older. Pfizer and Moderna vaccines require a second dose a few weeks after the first, and those who stay longer may also receive a second vaccination in Alaska.

Alaska does not require COVID-19 testing for those entering the state, but travelers are encouraged to read information about safe state travel and fill out a form for safe travel on the Alaska travel portal. At the travel portal, travelers can also request a free test for COVID-19 upon arrival and request a free vaccine against COVID-19.

Currently, the US-Canada border remains closed to all non-essential travel. Many international travelers, including those from the United Kingdom, Ireland, the Schengen area of ​​Europe, China, Brazil, South Africa and other countries, are still barred from entering the United States. More information can be found on the Alaska Department of Health and Human Services website.
