The online sign-up slots for this week’s COVID-19 vaccination clinic at the UOG Fieldhouse are already fully booked.

The increase in demand for vaccination can be attributed to the expansion of the vaccination age eligibility to 16 years old and above.

Fortunately, walk-ins will still be accepted tomorrow and next week at a stated limited rate of 15 per hour. But the Guam Guard usually doesn’t turn anybody away even if the stated walk-in limit is reached because the priority is to get as many people vaccinated as possible.

In addition, vaccine vials that have already been opened cannot be returned to storage so it’s better that they are used for walk-ins rather than be wasted and just thrown away.

Walk-ins wishing to avoid longer wait times are discouraged from lining up prior to the 10 a.m. opening and are asked to expect reasonable delays.

Upon arrival, individuals 60 years and older will be sent to the front of the line. Bring a digital or hard copy appointment confirmation, a photo ID, and proof of Guam residency (Guam Driver’s License, Guam ID, Green Card, US, FSM, Palau, or RMI Passport). Those due for their second dose are reminded to bring their COVID-19 immunization card. This ensures quicker processing and proper documentation.

The COVID-19 vaccination clinics continue through Saturday, March 27, from 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Tuesday, March 30 to April 2, 2021, from 12 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the UOG Fieldhouse.

These clinics will administer first doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine and second doses of both the Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine. The Johnson & Johnson vaccine is not available at the UOG vaccination clinic at this time.

Eligibility is open to residents 16 years and older. Minors must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian and provide government-issued identification to validate age. The parent or legal guardian will also be required to sign a consent form on behalf of the minor to receive the vaccine.

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), those due for their second dose of the vaccine may get their second dose up to four (4) days early or 42 days after. The CDC further states that if it is not feasible to adhere to the recommended interval and a delay in vaccination is unavoidable, the second dose of Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines may be administered up to 6 weeks (42 days) after the first dose.
