The Guam National Guard is expecting a surge in vaccinations at the UOG Fieldhouse clinic due to the expansion of the eligibility requirement to 16 years and older.

“If you or anyone you know plans to attend the 16+ UOG clinic starting tomorrow, please help us by managing expectations early. There should be some increased traffic and wait times. Please bring anything you may need to wait for multiple hours, possibly,” Guam Guard public information officer Mark Scott said in a statement.

He added that once the clinic opens, the latrines inside the Field House are available for all vaccine candidates, regardless of appointment time or walk-in status.
