Guam - The Department of Public Health held its first H1N1 Virus influenza mass vaccination point of dispensing at the University of Guam Field House today. This event is the first in a series of mass vaccinations aimed at providing an opportunity for everyone in the target groups to receive the vaccine.

Target groups include all pregnant women, people who live with or care for infants younger than six months, individuals between the ages of six months and 24 years old and people ages 25 through 64 who have chronic health disorders.

Public Health Spokesperson Cindy Hanson says the department will hold several others in the coming weeks, telling KUAM News, "The next H1N1 Virus open vaccination for the general public would be on December 19. That will be here at the Field House and then next Saturday, another one will be held with the Department of Education and that will be at Tamuning Elementary."
