Sitka Unified Command Encourages Sitkans to Vaccinate

When you are fully vaccinated (two weeks after your final shot):
▪️It is very unlikely that you will suffer severe illness, hospitalization, or death from the virus.
▪️You can gather indoors with others who have been fully vaccinated without wearing a mask.
▪️You can safely visit restaurants, theaters and the gym.
▪️You can safely travel outside Alaska for vacation and business.
▪️You no longer need to quarantine if exposed to COVID-19.
▪️You are more likely to be protected against currently circulating variants of the virus.

The more Alaskans are vaccinated, the fewer Alaskans will contract COVID-19, and the sooner businesses can ease restrictions. Vaccination is the fastest way to reopen Alaska’s economy and communities.

Unified Command recommends you research the COVID-19 vaccine to determine if it is right for you. Before scheduling your appointment, contact your healthcare provider to discuss the vaccine and available options.
