COVID-19 Vaccines

COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective. They are available for everyone aged six months and older. People who are up to date with their vaccines are optimally protected against severe illness and death from COVID. To make an appointment, visit vaccines.gov, text your ZIP code to 438829 or call the Alaska COVID Helpline at 907-646-3322.

Stay up to date

Protect yourself and everyone close to you by staying up to date with your vaccines. You are up to date with your COVID-19 vaccines when you have completed a primary series and received the most recent booster dose recommended for you.

COVID-19 vaccines are recommended for everyone 6 months and older.

Latest Recommendation: Updated Booster

People aged 12 and older are recommended to receive an updated bivalent COVID booster if they have completed a primary series and it has been at least two months since either their primary series or a booster dose.

COVID-19 vaccines for immunocompromised people

If you are moderately or severely immunocompromised, you are at an increased risk of severe COVID-19 illness and death. You are best protected when you stay up to date with your COVID-19 vaccines.

Individuals ages six months and older who are moderately or severely immunocompromised are recommended to get an extra shot in their primary series, followed by a booster shot if they are 5 and older.

In addition to vaccination, immunocompromised individuals may also consider EVUSHELD. EVUSHELD is an FDA-authorized monoclonal antibody used to prevent COVID-19 infection for moderately to severely immunocompromised people. Your health care provider can help you determine if this treatment is right for you.
