Guam - Public Health held their last back to school child immunization clinic this morning at the Micronesia Mall. Immunization Manager Annette Aguon says 200 people were vaccinated today but because of overwhelming demand, officials had to turn hundreds more away because they ran out of supplies.
"We always want to encourage parents to immunize their children to prevent them from coming down with a disease that could be prevent and for an individual, every immune system is different," said Aguon.
Aguon says that children can still update their shots by going to Public Health or checking their respective mayor's office. For more information you can call the DPHSS Immunization Program at 735-7143.
