CCMC is expecting to receive 100 doses of the Moderna COVID vaccine next week. These vaccines are allotted by the State of Alaska through its Phase 1b, Tier 1 COVID vaccine administration.
Current State of Alaska vaccine eligibility includes:
- Alaskans age 65 and above
- Anyone eligible in Phase 1a (healthcare workers, long-term care residents, and EMS).
Eligibility criteria can also be found at: http://dhss.alaska.gov/dph/epi/id/pages/COVID-19/vaccine.aspx
We are planning a vaccination clinic Wednesday, January 20, from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM. The second dose will be available Wednesday, February 17. You must be available for both doses of the vaccine in order to receive the first round.
If you are eligible for the vaccine, please call 424-3045 beginning at noon, Monday, January 18th, and leave a message with the following three pieces of information:
- Date of birth
- Contact phone number.
We will schedule appointments in the order messages are received. Any messages left before noon, January 18th, will be discarded. If you cannot leave a message for any reason, please call again. This is the only phone number to leave messages for COVID vaccine appointments.
100 appointment slots will be filled; the next 20 callers will be put on a wait list. If selected, someone will call you back by Tuesday afternoon with an appointment time for Wednesday, January 20th, between 10:00 AM and 3:00 PM.
If you have any questions about receiving the vaccine, please contact your medical provider to have them answered prior to the vaccine clinic on Wednesday. If something changes and the vaccine does not arrive as scheduled, we will maintain the same appointment schedule on the first available day following the vaccine’s arrival in Cordova.
The Medical Response Team of Cordova has requested a large number of vaccines for February. We will know by the end of the month if this request will be filled. Continue to be prepared for rapidly changing information as federal and state teams continue to roll out vaccines as rapidly as possible. Your flexibility and understanding are greatly appreciated. We look forward to being able to vaccinate every Cordovan who wishes to receive the vaccine!
