2nd children’s vaccination clinic held at FDMS


Another Archdiocese of Agaña/American Medical Center Children’s Vaccination Clinic was held from 4 to 7 pm on Saturday, Dec. 11, at the Father Duenas Memorial School Phoenix Center.

The second dose of the Pfizer vaccine for the children was administered along with the first and second doses or boosters to anyone wishing to be vaccinated.

The first Archdiocese of Agaña/American Medical Center Children’s Vaccination Clinic held on Saturday, Nov. 20th at the Father Duenas Memorial School Phoenix Center was a tremendous success.

It was a wonderful family event where many parents brought their children to receive the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine. Some parents also received their first, second, or booster shots. Overall, Pfizer vaccines were administered to 325 individuals: 210 were children ages five-and above and 115 were adults. Ninety-eight of the adults received booster shots.

The archdiocese extends gratitude to Dr. Hoa Nguyen and members of the American Medical Center (AMC) team for their generous time and service to the Church and community.
