The latest installment of the Alaska’s online pro-vax series is giving health care workers strategies to deal with what they consider to be problematic parents who are skeptical about the benefits of subjecting their kids to experimental Covid jabs.

In partnership with UAA, the State of Alaska relaunched its online ECHO series in August. During the initial Covid outbreak, state officials used the programs to push the CDC’s pro-jab messages. UAA is incentivizing participation in the ECHO sessions by offering continuing education credits to health care providers who join the meetings.

The latest session on Nov. 21 featured a handful of state health officials, along with two women who describe themselves as being former anti-vaxxers until they saw the light and decided to whole-heartedly submit to Covid shot recommendations from the CDC.

The talk never cited any of the evidence or academic studies regarding alternative treatments such as Ivermectin, monoclonal antibodies, and other supplements which have proven to be effective alternatives.

The speakers, Heather Simpson and Lydia Greene, founded an organization called “Back to the Vax,” which includes their conversion stories from vaccine skeptics to zealous Covid jab evangelists. They framed their change of heart in quasi-religious terms, suggesting that they were breaking away from ignorant zealots and misinformed keyboard warriors.

During the hour-long session, the two women offered the 75 participants suggestions on how to strategically counter those who they consider to be under the spell of “vaccine misinformation and hesitation.”

Participants were told how they can more effectively administer vaccines to those who have serious concerns about side effects and injuries.

The latest ECHO painted those who are hesitant about Covid jabs as being gripped by anxiety and fear due to doctors and others who promote so-called “anti-vaccine propaganda.” Throughout much of the talk, “anti-vaxxers” were labeled “conspiracy theorists,” and purveyors of “misinformation.”

The presentation seems to indicate that the state may be shifting its strategy.

The talk never cited any of the evidence or academic studies regarding alternative treatments such as Ivermectin, monoclonal antibodies, and other supplements which have proven to be effective alternatives for many who have refused Covid jabs. Many of these alternatives were discussed during the recent Alaska Covid Alliance conference in Anchorage.

Both Simpson and Greene encouraged healthcare workers to listen to the “irrational” concerns that people raise about vaccines, and to be willing to enter into conversation.

The presentation seems to indicate that the state may be shifting its strategy. Rather than simply pushing pro-vax sloganeering, healthcare workers are being urged treat the vaccine-hesitant as misguided but good-hearted souls who simply need conversion.

Alaska’s initial Covid outbreak ECHO sessions were primarily used to promote pro-vaccination messaging to journalists, educators, health care providers, employers and others. Alaska’s Chief Medical Officer Anne Zink was a frequent panelist, regularly downplaying vaccine injuries and adverse reactions, while extolling the “benefits” of the jab for young children, pregnant women and others.

The latest rendition of ECHO claims to take the program “to the next level” with a “new platform” and “centralized hub.”

“Participants will have increased understanding of the vaccine distribution and reporting infrastructure in Alaska, including key systems for vaccine management,” the ECHO website states. “Participants will be able to better implement evidence-based interventions to increase the percentage of Alaskans who have received CDC recommended vaccinations on the recommended schedule.”

Founded by the University of New Mexico, ECHO’s national website promotes the United Nation’s “sustainable development goals,” which include “gender equality,” “climate action” and reducing so-called “inequities” around the world. The umbrella site also includes multiple links back to UNM promoting transgender hormones for children, gay pride parades, “diversity, equity and inclusion” trainings and more.

Funded by large multi-national organizations and companies including Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson, World Health Organization and the CDC, ECHO is now an international force, boasting more than 4 million session attendees in 193 countries.

    The entire pandemic is based on the PCR test which isn’t a test and the CDC even says is flawed and they don’t use it any more.. Hence, the CDC is saying the pandemic is flawed, if somebody had the sense to put 2 and 2 together.

  • Ceak says:

    I have many cousins who have stayed up to date with each booster. They are convinced it’s still necessary. One of them died of a heart attack earlier this year. No underlying conditions.

    • Jim Quinn says:

      People die of heart attacks every day. Some of them were vaxxed, some of them were not.

    • Chuck Anziulewicz says:

      Wow, your logic is impeccable, isn’t it? Someone who got vaccinated had a heart attack, therefore the vaccine caused the heart attack. Personally I haven’t had COVID, but I’m rather fond of liverwurst. Therefore liverwurst prevents COVID.

  • Friend of Humanity says:

    Say “No” to the jabs. You say that you are going to lose your job? Which is worse? Losing your job or losing your life? The evil needs us to take the jabs to get rid of a lot of people AND to finish setting up the infrastructure for 15 minute cities. SAY NO TO THE JABS.

      Won’t you god save you?

      • Vonda Sanders says:

        Ok the smears on God is getting old. Read your Bible because if you did, everything that is happening now is in the Bible open your eyes.
        The jabs are deadly. I normally do not comment but you are pretty gosh darn dense Open your eyes that’s all I have to say.
        Even if you don’t want me to pray for you I still will.

      • Proud Alaskan says:

        Yes God is in control
        Don’t take the mark of the beast
        No mask or shots for me.
        Yes we will be praying you

        He already has

  • Douglas says:

    Why does the CDC VAERs site have a whole other level of reported/updated vax shot injuries and deaths that the public is not privy to read? Are they hiding the magnitude of injuries and deaths this experimental synthetic material caused? The evidence of what the jab is and how Pfizer is protected from lawsuits by congressional legislation pushed by the CDC and NIH, as well as the harm it caused worldwide (in the midst of the WEF and B Gates public announcements of the need for population control) is so wide and deep that it saddens me when the CURRENT vax supporters throw the conspiracy card. After all, the evidence from biologists, chemists, scientists, morticians, and the very executives who worked for Pfizer and scientists who invented the mRNA material report its intent was not to benefit humanity but alter it genetically via DNA alteration and harm many permanently (with tens of millions resulting deaths months later). Will there be more and worse…was the covid jab a dry run?

    The Covid “vaccine” is a scam by the wealthy elite to turn us into Satan worshipers

  • Friend of Humanity says:

    There are lawyers, doctors, nurses, whistle blowers and others speaking at hearings in corrupt Washington D.C. (whatever it is called now!), bringing up lawsuits against big pharma, hospitals, and other entities/people involved in pushing the big lies and injuring and murdering people in our country and around the world. Yet, the globalists continue to push this bioweapon technology jab, forcing people to play their game and spew their lies (and be the fall guys). The jabs are meant to get the internet of things technology in all of us and kill as many as possible also. Once every thing and everyone has this technology in them, there will be the capability to monitor and control the entire world through this technology. Check out Attorney Tom Renz, Attorney Todd Callender,,, for starters to learn the damning truth about the lies that we have been told to make us obey. Say NO to the shots (jabs, “vaccines”).

  • Friend of Humanity says:

    Unvaxxed patient gets a blood transfusion after hip surgery and now is unofficially jabbed and has the unfortunate injuries that come with getting the jabs. Do Not Get The Shots!

  • Elizabeth Henry says:

    The vaccines are still woefully untested with much evidence of potential problems. The arguments above that people die of heart attacks all the time, are like responding to ‘knives cut’ with ‘well people get cut all the time’ . There has been a pretty pointed increase of cardiac events in athletes, and people very young for a random heart attack, since the onset of the virus and the vaccines. To be fair, getting Covid is also causing heart issues. I had myocarditis from having Covid and had heart issues for months after, having to be monitored, and going through myriads of tests. It is spike proteins which are produced from the vaccine as well as the virus itself. It appears that both the vaccines and the virus can result in problems. We do not know enough yet but no one should be forced to receive the vaccine and it should not be pushed, especially using taxpayer money.

  • Steve Peterson says:

    One of Trump’s biggest mistakes was support of the vax.
    My policy is that anything fully supported by leftists and globalists is damaging and evil and designed to control people. I know four people who were vaxed early on and died of heart attacks or other heart related problems. The oldest was in his early 50s.

  • Lucinda says:

    Vonda. You are part of the reason that people are questioning the Christian mythology.

  • River says:

    Hey Lucinda.Baaaa Baaaaaa Baaaaaa Baaaaaa……..Baal

  • Friend of Humanity says:

    Another reason for not taking the jabs: Dr. Peter McCullough says that it looks like nearly every person that took the vaccine has heart damage.
    Study finds everyone who got the COVID-19 vaccine has heart damage, says Peter McCullough, MD

    • Lucinda says:

      The New York Times says this, “ More than 5.55 billion people worldwide have received a dose of a Covid-19 vaccine, equal to about 72.3 percent of the world population.”. So FoH, do all those billions have heart damage?

      • Friend of Humanity says:

        Well, if a newspaper is correct on the statistics, then the globalist will only need to get rid of 2 billion or so more people since they’ll have secured the death of so many through fast or slow means, right?

      • Mike Alexander says:

        First of all it’s the New York Times, but as for their number for shots given. The actual way they figure how many shots were given is not by shot records, but by the number of vials shipped to a location. The only fact we can be sure of is that 5.5 billion doses were shipped, not that 5.5 billion shots were given.
