Anchorage Chamber of Commerce Incentivizes Vaccinations
The Anchorage Chamber of Commerce in partnership with the Alaska Chamber and Alaska Department of Health & Social Services is offering free gift cards from Anchorage Chamber member businesses to newly vaccinated Alaskans in the month of July.

Gift cards are being distributed to all Municipality of Anchorage clinics run by the Anchorage Health Department, Anchorage Mobile Vaccine Team, and Visit Healthcare.
To find a clinic, visit anchoragecovidvaccine.org. Appointments are available and walk-ins are welcome. Gift cards will be given on a first-come, first-served basis.
