COVID-19 Vaccine Updates for Seward //
Updated May 7, 2021
COVID‐19 Vaccines Available to All People Age 16+ Who Live or Work in Alaska
On March 9, 2021, Alaska Governor Mike Dunleavy announced that the COVID‐19 vaccine is now available to all people age 16 years and older who live or work in Alaska.
At this time, Seward Community Health Center (SCHC) only has vaccines approved for adults age 18 years and older. This includes the two‐shot Moderna vaccine series and the one‐shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine. However, effective April 13, we are pausing distribution of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine according to CDC guidance.
SCHC has limited supplies of all vaccine types and will administer them by appointment only. Those interested should call 907‐224‐2273. Callers should leave their name, date of birth, and phone number, and also specify which vaccine they are interested in. There are no guarantees we will have your preferred vaccine available, since SCHC does not have control over what the state makes available.
Please be patient, as we anticipate a high volume of calls. You may need to leave a message, but there is no need to call more than once. Your place in line is based on the order in which messages are received. SCHC will return messages only as appointments become available.
Once scheduled for the vaccine, patients should bring photo ID and insurance information to their appointment. There is no charge for the COVID‐19 vaccine. If you are insured, SCHC will bill the patient’s insurance for a nominal vaccine administration fee.
