Anchorage's three acute care facilities shared data with us to create this infographic comparing hospitalization, ICU, and ventilator rates among vaccinated and unvaccinated patients.

ASHNHA continues to promote vaccinations as a tool in the fight against COVID.
In the first week of September, the Alaska Chamber launched a program to encourage vaccinations across the state. Through Oct. 30, 2021, Alaskans vaccinated for COVID-19 are eligible to enter the Alaska Chamber’s “Give AK a Shot” drawing for a chance to win $49,000.
"Healthy people are the foundation of a healthy economy, and our economy is suffering. The Alaska Chamber firmly believes that one of the most important tools in realizing economic recovery is vaccinating for COVD-19. It is the single easiest and safe thing that individual Alaskans can do to help get our economy back on track."
