Alaska has ordered 8,900 doses of the single-shot Johnson & Johnson Vaccine, the state's chief medical officer, Anne Zink, tweeted Tuesday.
From that total, 3,000 vaccines will be allocated to Native American tribes for the Sovereign Nations Supplement, Zink explained in an email to CNN.
The state's Federal Pharmacy Partnership will also receive doses of the vaccine.
"Currently, we can see that the federal pharmacy partnership has been allocated 1800 doses of J&J/Janssen for Alaska to start," Zink said.
She noted that this number is separate and in addition to the 8,900 doses the state is expecting.
However, Zink noted that the exact time of arrival and administration of the doses is unknown.
