The Guam Department of Education (GDOE) and Public Health’s Immunization program will host one last COVID-19 vaccination clinic for graduating seniors.

The “Vaccinate Before You Graduate” clinic will be on Monday, May 24, 2021, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in the John F. Kennedy gymnasium.

Although geared towards seniors who will soon be receiving their diplomas, GDOE is encouraging all eligible students and people in the community to avail themselves of the vaccination clinic.

The Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine will be administered to interested individuals who are 12 years of age or older. Individuals who are under the age of 18 must be accompanied by one parent or, by a legal guardian while receiving the vaccine.

Interested and eligible students, their parents/guardians, and the community are welcomed to walk in on the day of the clinic. We also encourage participants to schedule their appointments online at https://tinyurl.com/guvacgrad21.

All participants must complete a consent form before they can receive the vaccine. Printed copies of the consent form are available at GWHS. The PDF of the consent form is available to download at https://tinyurl.com/3xvaw4b3.

Parents/guardians and participants must provide a valid Guam identification. Students may also use their school identification cards.

Accompanying parents/guardians can receive the Pfizer vaccine as well. Participants are to follow the COVID-19 Mitigation Guidelines:

· Undergo a temperature check before entering campus;

· Wear a mask at all times;

· Maintain a physical distance of at least 6ft.;

· Wash hands or use hand sanitizer often;

· Arrive fifteen (15) minutes before their scheduled appointment; and

· Remain in their vehicles until instructed to enter the gymnasium.

Please be advised that vaccinations are given upon availability.
