Gov. Mike Dunleavy directed the Alaska Dept. of Law to begin an investigation of a potential illegal sharing of information with people working for the Municipality of Anchorage who were seeking COVID-19 vaccine data on Alaskans.

An April 15 announcement stated that a group of Alaskans were contacted by individuals working for Anchorage after the municipality received names and contact information of those individuals through an “unauthorized action by staff at the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services.”

The Watchman has received reports from Anchorage residents who say they were contacted by people working for the Municipality of Anchorage this week asking if they could schedule an appointment for them to get a COVID injection. This comes on the hells of Monday’s announcement by Acting Mayor Austin Quinn-Davidson who said she would not rescind COVID mandates until the city reaches 70% vaccination for everyone qualified to get the shots.

According to the April 15 announcement by the governor’s office, the state does have a “data sharing agreement” with Anchorage’s Health Department, but the incident in question “did not occur through that channel.”

Dunleavy has directed Health Commissioner Adam Crum to conduct an internal review of all the department’s data sharing agreements.

“Alaskans value their right to privacy, especially sensitive health information, and they have a right to know how that information may or may not be used,” Dunleavy said. “While the data shared appears to be limited, I apologize to any Alaskan affected by this action. The Department of Law will investigate the facts of the event while Health and Social Services will report back to me with new policies and procedures that will prevent this from happening again.”

Maria Bahr of the Alaska Dept. of Law said she could not respond to Alaska Watchman questions about the incident because “senior leadership just learned of this, and the Governor wanted to act quickly to let the public know. However, that means that our investigation has only just begun, and it will take some time to make sure we have accurate information.”

It is unknown how many Alaskans were affected by the data leak or what the aim of Municipality of Anchorage was in seeking the information.

  • John J Otness says:

    Funny how all our information was stolen earlier in the PFD debacle Under the Lt Gov ,,, Funny how the Chinese communist party Dominion vote machines were installed under the Lt Gov ? Funny how hard the Governor has pushed this MRNA so called Vaccination that is actually killing people . Funny that all this has happened under this Governor and no one knows anything. Where actually did the buck used to stop? Or is this all about the Buck? We in this state and Nation are in trouble and you better stop being so naive about Leadership and Benevolence. Seek GOD and ask for Wisdom and Understanding Govt has failed.

    First came Gates, then came Wuhan, then came instant plannedemic funded by the UN until 3/31/2025. Just because “they”, the believers in your slide into peonage, haven’t told you yet doesn’t mean they ever will. They haven’t told the middle people yet either. I Appreciate he is not like the MI creep.

  • LINDA M FRENCH says:

    Regarding the (thank goodness) temporary Mayor: Observing each action pushed by government, big pharma, social media gives me all the “facts” I need. Each control mechanism is squeezing us all into a smaller and smaller corral of “non-life”…that’s the whole point of “their” program…all part of the Great Reset, of course. So, if the fake Mayor is going to wait until 70% of the citizenry gets the fake-“vaccine” I hope she gets all of hers. That way she won’t be in office again to try and bully anyone else into her idea of being a good citizen and complying with what she’s told to do. One size does not fit all when you are able to use both sides of the brain God gave us to THINK and REASON. Just my opinion, of course.

    Check out All of our info is there. Thanks to the Dept of Election the worthless sewer sucks.

  • NAV says:

    Dunleavy and the senate President of the senate are crooks doing everything they can to distract Alaskans from what they are doing in Juneau they are stripping the power from the legislature to give all the power to the executive branch. He is now trying to outlaw state militia’s because they are afraid of the people when they find out your rights are gone. Only one politician under 24/7 attack stands in their way Sen.Reinbold!!!

    And this is what catholic services is doing in conjunction with our State govt,,,,

    Look up Dr. Ryan Cole in Idaho… there might still be videos of him speaking on Utube unless they take them down.
    If HE had been in charge instead of Fauxi, hundreds of thousands of Americans most likely would not have died. Everyone wants to blame Trump, but he kept talking about no nonsense therapies and the media liars worked overtime to turn the American people against him, and most sheeple followed right along. Common Sense out the window! At this point I guess anyone who lined up for the vaxxine gets what they deserve because there is enough info out there to know the vaxxines are causing a lot of injuries.. Maybe its just time to thin the herd..


    I used to trust most of the people in authority, including in the government and Catholic Church. That trust has been broken and I, for one, don’t believe a word they say anymore. This is why violence throughout the nation (and world) is rising. When there is a breakdown of society everyone has to look out for themselves, their families and neighbors. I am to the point I have been having continuous panic attacks (never had before) and am now relying on Valium just in order to breathe. I think a lot of people are close to reaching the breaking point; or have and are loosing it. I’m close to doing so myself. This leaking of, what is supposed to be – according to HIPA law – our health status, as well as the hacking of the voting system; which the Lt Gov said was no big deal; are dangerous. Glad I’m armed up: the next thing coming down the road is gun confiscation and that will be the breaking point for me. “Out of my cold, dead hands”, said Moses (Carleton Heston). Enough. Stop wearing these masks. I have not been doing so at Carrs and Freddies for a couple of weeks now and no one stopped or even questioned me. The more of this that do this, the sooner these fascists will loose control.
