FAIRBANKS, Alaska (KTVF) - The University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) will be hosting a vaccination clinic for both COVID-19 and the flu.

According to Samara Taber, Executive Director of University Advancement for UAF, the clinic will be offering a wide variety of vaccinations.

“We’re community partners,” Taber remarked. “The University of Alaska Fairbanks wants to invite the whole community to join us if they need to at this free public COVID-19 and flu vaccination drop-in clinic today, February 17th and tomorrow, the 18th from noon to 8 p.m. in the Patty Center on the Fairbanks Troth Yeddha’ campus. The clinic will offer first shots, second shots, boosters, and pediatric COVID-19 vaccines, and all three vaccines will be offered: Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson. Flu shots will be available and can be given at the same time as the COVID-19 vaccine.”

Occasionally, finding parking on the UAF Troth Yeddha’ campus can be difficult, but Taber says the university is offering a solution for the duration of the clinic. “Parking won’t be enforced at UAF in that lot in front of the Patty Center from 12:00 to 8:00 p.m. So if that’s a concern for folks, feel free to come by. You don’t have to worry about parking, you can just pop in and get your vaccine or flu shot.”

Along with this week’s clinic, UAF continues to offer a COVID-19 testing site to help catch and prevent the further spread of the virus.

“COVID-19 testing continues to be available to the public on the Fairbanks Troth Yeddha’ campus,” Taber continued, “and that Beacon testing site is located in the Nenana parking lot right across the street from the Patty Center. It’s open Monday through Saturday, 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. with extended hours to 8:00 p.m. on Wednesdays and Thursdays.”
