In addition to vaccinating by age group, NSHC will be reaching out directly by phone to patients age 16 and older with certain medical conditions, to invite them to pharmacy for a vaccination. NSHC understands some community members are homebound. Please call or text 907-434-0461. Medical personnel will return your message and discuss a safe vaccine plan with you and your family.
