Guam - H1N1 Virus vaccines will be available to Tamuning Elementary School students at the school tomorrow.  From 10am to 2pm, students grades 2 to 5 will be able to come in and receive the vaccine free of charge. 

According to H1N1 Spokesperson Cindy Hanson, scheduling the mass vaccination for a Saturday instead of during school hours is a departure from the previous school vaccinations.  She explained, "We're kind of doing an experiment to see what the traffic is like we did Marcial Sablan [Elementary School] and that was on a weekday ran just fine, no problems whatsoever. 

"But we want to be able to do one on a weekend to compare and see if maybe that works better for the parents and better for the flow of traffic in these high traffic schools."
