As to make the high footfall of tourists throughout the country the Alaska Tourism Authority has announced that it will be given a vaccine to all passengers arriving at several airports of Alaska like Anchorage, Fairbanks, Juneau and Ketchikan, with the camps outside the security area.

Alaska Gov. Mike Dunleavy said on friday that vaccine will be available at airports from June 1, 2021 to encourage the tourists for theit visits in Alaksa.

In the national marketing campaign of Alaska it is said that "probably another good reason to come to the state of Alaska in the summer"


Some of the other places in Alaska have also encourages the travellers as they are ensuring the safety and less chances of spreading in any mean. Alaska have high number of tourists arrival in summer which brings economy a very high revenue. After arrival of COVID-19 the travellers and the economy of Alaska both lead to downfall.

Alaska was the first state to remove the restrictions on who could get a Covid-19 vaccine when last month it opened eligibility to anyone 16 or older who lives or works in the Alaska.

Heidi Hedberg, the state health department's Division of Public Health director, said there is an good supply of vaccine. She said the airport program will offer the two-dose to the travellers of Pfizer or Moderna vaccines.

Hedberg said officials are hearing from other states that there is "a lot of vaccine availability," so if travellers are not also in Alaska when it's time for their second dose, they can follow-up at a clinic or with their provider when they return home, she said. They would need to make sure that if their first dose was with Pfizer, for example, that their second dose is also a Pfizer dose.

Vaccinations would open more widely, to anyone passing through, starting from June 1, Hedberg said.

State health officials also have encouraged travellers to test for Covid-19.
