CBJ Update: Flu shot not available at COVID-19 booster clinic

    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - The City and Borough of Juneau, the Juneau Public Health Center, Bartlett Regional Hospital, and the Juneau School District are sponsoring an updated COVID-19 booster vaccine clinic on Saturday, Oct. 1.

    Update 10/1: The City and Borough of Juneau have confirmed the flu vaccine shipment has not arrived on time to offer flu shots at the public vaccine clinic today. 

    The City and Borough of Juneau, the Juneau Public Health Center, Bartlett Regional Hospital, and the Juneau School District will announce to the public future flu vaccination options once  Public Health receives the shipment.  

    Original: 

    The clinic will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Floyd Dryden Middle School, located at 3800 Mendenhall Loop Road.

    The clinic originally planned to offer both the bivalent COVID-19 booster and flu vaccines. However, due to delays at the manufacturer and in shipping, the flu vaccine has not yet arrived at Public Health.

    It is therefore possible  that the flu vaccine will not be available at tomorrow's clinic. Those registered for the clinic have been informed of this possibility via email and will receive a follow-up email by the end of the day today notifying them whether or not flu shots will be available.

    Public Health has received the COVID-19 booster from Pfizer-BioNTech. If you have registered for a COVID-19 booster you will still be able to receive your dose at tomorrow’s clinic as originally planned.

    Bring your COVID vaccine card with you to your appointment.
