Alaska Health Department planning to provide COVID vaccine to tourists

Alaska COVID

The state health department is floating the idea of providing COVID-19 vaccinations to travelers at Alaska’s busiest airports with the summer tourism and fishing seasons looming.

The department released a request for information Wednesday, seeking to determine interest among potential contractors to provide a one-dose vaccine to interested travelers in a secure section of the airports in Anchorage, Juneau, Fairbanks and Ketchikan.

The state health department request asks interested contractors to provide staffing plans and estimates for what they think it would cost to administer the program.
