The UOG vaccination clinic resumed Tuesday and no concerns were raised over waiting time or long lines.

It’s week 4 since the Guam National Guard in partnership with Public Health and the Office of the Governor took the initiative in setting up a vaccination clinic at the UOG Fieldhouse.

Operation Liberate Guam’s goal is to get the island 80% herd immunity through vaccines by Liberation Day on July 21, 2021.

Captain Denise Chargualaf, the taskforce medical commander of the Guam National Guard, told PNC that operations have been running smoothly.

“Today, so far, things have been great. No complaints. We are expecting over 1200 individuals today and so things are going as well as it can possibly be,” Chargualaf said.

According to Captain Chargualaf, the Guam Guard has administered 11,300 vaccines to island residents thus far.

Meanwhile, Yigo resident George Barnhart received his second dose of the Pfizer vaccine and gives a thumbs up to the Guam Guard on clinic functions.

“Right now I feel good. I feel confident that I won’t catch COVID-19,” he said.

Barnhart advises the community to get vaccinated.

“Yes, please do get vaccinated. We will have less of a chance to catch COVID. Please go out and get your shots,” Barnhart said.

To date, 41,672 people on Guam have already been vaccinated against COVID-19.

The clinic is free and open to those who are eligible to get vaccinated.

To sign up today, you can schedule an appointment via Eventbrite and bring a photo ID.
