Community immunity and why it matters

by The 100 Companies

You’ve heard of community (herd) immunity, but what exactly is it and how do we get there?

Community immunity occurs when a large enough portion of a population becomes immune to a disease, making its spread unlikely. The faster we achieve community immunity, the faster we will get back to normal and to live our lives freely again.

The best way to do this is by getting vaccinated. All the U.S. COVID-19 vaccines are extremely safe and effective, as demonstrated through a rigorous and transparent process.

Visit covidvax.alaska.gov or call 907-646-3322 to schedule your COVID-19 vaccine appointment today.
