Booster shots will be available at the University of Guam Calvo Field House starting Friday for people who had a normal immune response to the first two doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, but because of time, antibody levels are beginning to wane.

The Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine is the only FDA-authorized vaccine to administer as a booster. The following groups of people are eligible for a booster shot of Pfizer-BioNTech if they completed the Pfizer-BioNTech series (first two doses) and it has been 6 months or more since the second dose:

  • Anyone age 65+

  • Anyone age 18 – 64 with underlying medical conditions

  • Anyone 18 – 64 with an elevated risk of COVID-19 exposure and transmission due to their occupation (healthcare workers, law enforcement, fire, K-12 teachers and support staff, university faculty, daycare employees, food and agriculture workers, manufacturing workers, USPS workers, corrections workers, public transit workers, grocery store workers)

If eligible, please make your Booster Shot appointment at tinyurl.com/vaxguam. Walk-ins are accepted but should be prepared for longer wait times.
