COVID-19 vaccination clinics will still be available to the community through expanded efforts by the Department of Public Health and Social Services (DPHSS). Expanded operations will run through August and September at the Community Health Centers (CHC) in Dededo and Inalahan and Micronesia Mall. Residents continue to have the option to visit their private clinics and pharmacies who are enrolled providers of the COVID-19 vaccine to get their COVID-19 shots, as well as request homebound visits for the COVID-19 vaccination. For a list of updated locations and schedules, please visit dphss.guam.gov/vaccinateGU
 
DPHSS reminds residents that the federal government purchased the vaccines and COVID- 19 vaccines are provided to patients at no cost. Residents are advised not to pay any out-of-pocket expenses for the COVID-19 vaccine. 
 
The COVID-19 vaccines from Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna require two doses. Residents will need a follow-up dose to be effectively immunized. The recommended second-dose date is three weeks or 21 days after a first dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, and four weeks or 28 days for Moderna. 
 
Further, if you are overdue for your second dose, the CDC says an interval of up to six weeks is acceptable. Residents who are overdue for dose two of either the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine are encouraged to complete their vaccination series. The Johnson and Johnson/Janssen is a one-dose vaccine to be fully immunized.
