I love the pictures of vaccine distribution in Alaska.
Maniilaq has been sending out teams to our surrounding villages to vaccinate against COVID-19.
Dr. Bengaard and team went out to Ambler, Shungnak and Kobuk offering the Pfizer vaccine to all essential workers and seniors 65 and older.
She said “it was a pleasure to be a part of this efficient team consisting of a physician, 2 nurses and a pharmacist.
Recipients expressed how grateful they were that even though they are so remote, they are getting this vaccine. They are not forgotten and we’re glad to offer this timely.
One women described the stories of terrible loss from the 1918 flu that wiped out whole villages. She’s so glad they are being given the opportunity to get vaccinated and prevent additional trauma.”
