As corporate and governmental agencies increasingly apply pressure and coercion to achieve vaccine compliancy, Anchorage residents are voicing opposition.

On Thursday, Aug. 5, a peaceful protest against the growing movement to mandate COVID-19 vaccines will take place along the Tudor Road sidewalk outside the Alaska Native Medical Center. Jointly operated by the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium (ANTHC) and the Southcentral Foundation, the medical center is part of a litany of groups that have ordered employees to get the COVID jab in order to remain employed.

“The sole purpose of this event is to stand with employees and their families as well as customer-owners of Southcentral Foundation and Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium to make our voices heard,” a notice for the event states. “Their mandate of the COVID-19 vaccine is taking away our rights to make our own healthcare decisions.”

Announced on July 8, the ANTHC order states that its 3,000-plus employees must be “fully vaccinated” by Oct. 15.

The protest rally begins at 5 p.m. and attendees are encouraged to bring their own signs.
