ANCHORAGE - Alaska is doing away with free vaccines for adults at public health clinics.
State immunization program manager Laurel Wood tells the Anchorage Daily News that the federal Centers for Disease Control is cutting back on Alaska's vaccine money, and beginning in January, adults will no longer be able to get free shots for flu, pneumonia, tetanus or other vaccines.
The state distributed 65,000 free shots to adults last year.
The state will continue to offer free children's vaccines.
