Guam - If you haven't gotten your H1N1 Virus vaccine yet, the Department of Public Health will be hosting another mass vaccination pod this weekend.  About 15,000 island residents have already been vaccinated.  Public Health Director J. Peter Roberto says the initial wave of infections may have subsided, but it's still important for residents to take the precaution.

"Nationwide, as with any communicable disease, when it has its own season of spread is I think what people are doing, what we're concerned about is complacency whether it be with H1N1, with the flu, with pinkeye, there's always that period - that lull period," he said.

The mass vaccination will be held this Saturday at the University of Guam Field House from 9 in the morning until 2 in the afternoon.  You must be in line when the gates close at 1:30.
