    Guam - The DPHSS is strongly urging residents in the Target Groups to take advantage of this free vaccination POD. The POD will be ongoing from 9 am to 4 pm, or as long as supplies last.

    The Target Groups are as follows, and please note that certain groups will be asked to bring certification of their condition with them, along with their shot records (if available):

    1. All pregnant women – please bring a Doctor’s certification or proof of pregnancy (obviously this will not apply to women who are already showing)
    2. People who live with or care for infants younger than 6 months
    3. Persons between the ages of 6 months and 24 years of age
    4. People age 25 through 64 who have chronic health disorders or compromised immune systems – please bring a Doctor’s certification or proof of your medical condition (such as a
    prescription bottle for your condition)
    5. Health-care and emergency medical services personnel with direct patient care – please bring your employee identification (ID) or other proof of your profession (like wear your uniform, etc)


    It is very important that as many people as possible take advantage of this free Mass Vaccination on Saturday. The sooner vaccination of the Target Groups is completed, the sooner we will be able to begin vaccinating the general public.The DPHSS greatly appreciates your support in this share responsibility to protect our community from the H1N1 Influenza.

    Hi,

    I'll be travelling to Guam on 22nd Dec (i.e. next week). Can someone please let me know how safe is Guam? Is there any risk of picking up swine (H1N1) flu?

      Swine flu has spread world wide.

      Shine upon you,

      And the pure light within you
      Guide your way on."

        Get H1N1 vaccine at Yigo gym

        Pacific Daily News • news@guampdn.com. • January 8, 2010

        Guam residents can go to an H1N1 mass vaccination on Jan.16, 9 a.m. to 12 noon, at the Yigo gym, the Guam public health department announced yesterday.

        The department has previously expressed concern that the public may be feeling that the H1N1 crisis has passed, though the virus is still active on the island, its press release states.

        The department urges everyone in the community to protect themselves from this potentially deadly virus by getting immunized at one of the mass vaccinations.

        Adults are asked to bring a picture ID and children must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

            Guam - If you haven't gotten it done yet, it's a good idea to head over to the Micronesia Mall in Dededo tomorrow to get your dose of the H1N1 vaccine. If you're child is under the age of 9 and got a shot, keep in mind he or she needs to get a second dose.

            Tomorrow's outreach event at the Mall is from 3 in the afternoon to 8 at night.
