The Ketchikan EOC recommends that 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.

Be sure to keep your COVID-19 vaccination appointment!

COVID-19 vaccines have a limited shelf life once a vial is open. Local healthcare providers set up appointments so that they can open a vial of COVID-19 vaccine and use all the doses in the vial while it is still good. When a person does not show up for their shot, the unused vaccine may expire and have to be discarded. With so many people waiting to get the vaccine, it is important to use every bit of it to help end this pandemic. If you have an appointment and have to reschedule, please contact your provider as soon as possible to do so.
