Hepatitis B Vaccination Program
Alaska law provides that hepatitis B vaccine is made reasonably accessible at no charge to all volunteer emergency medical and rescue personnel in the state who provide an emergency medical or rescue service primarily within an unincorporated community or within a municipality that does not provide funding for the emergency medical service. "Emergency medical and rescue personnel" means a trauma technician, emergency medical technician, rescuer, or mobile intensive care paramedic; and "volunteer" means that the person is an active volunteer of a first responder service, a rescue service, an ambulance service, or a fire department that provides emergency medical or rescue services as part of its duties. AS 18.15.250
To obtain the vaccine, the head of the service should fill out a Verification of Eligibility form with a roster of personnel who are eligible for the vaccine and fax to 907-465-4101.
