The Pfizer and Moderna vaccine are both mRNA vaccines. The Johnson & Johnson vaccine is a viral vector vaccine. Alaska was the first state in the US to remove eligibility requirements for the COVID-19 vaccine. A COVID-19 vaccine is now available for anyone living or working in Alaska who is age 16 or older.
