At the recommendation of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), and in consultation with the Vaccine and Antiviral Prioritization Policy Committee (VAPPC), the Department of Public Health and Social Services (DPHSS) will now include elderly adults ages 75 years and older in the Phase 1b priority group to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), this population is at the highest risk for COVID-19-related hospitalization and death.

DPHSS will resume COVID-19 vaccinations for part of Phase 1b on Monday, December 28 through Wednesday, December 30, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Okkodo High School in Dededo. The school cafeteria and gymnasium will be set up as a temporary vaccination clinic. A government-issued ID is required and participants will be asked to present a list of their current doctor-prescribed medication.
