Guam - The best protection against Swine Flu is to get vaccinated. Public Health this Saturday will be giving out free shots this Saturday at the University of Guam Field House. The vaccination is for everyone from six months and above.

Public Health Spokesperson Cindy Hanson said, "One thing that the department is concerned about is that people may become complacent and feeling like they don't have anything to worry about when it comes to the H1N1 Virus. We want to make sure everyone knows that the flu is still on Guam and is still active and the best protection is to get vaccinated."

The vaccination program starts at 9 in the morning Saturday. Make sure to bring a picture ID, and children should be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. If you have your shot record, you can bring it and Public Health will update it for you.
