Guam - With the start of the new school just a month away, the Department of Public Health and Social Services will be hosting a Back to School Immunization Clinic on Monday.

DPHSS immunization program manager Annette Aguon said, "With school starting in mid-August, as tentatively scheduled, what we do is expand our services so that we can assist the general public services because it is a school requirement, as well as a daycare requirement for children who are going to enter private or public schools on Guam as well as private daycare centers, so we want to make sure that individuals are up to date required immunizations but we will also offer recommended immunizations and expanded services."

The clinic is for children 4 to 18 years of age. Parents must bring their child's most current shot record. All children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

Because the vaccines are federally funded, only those with no insurance, Medicare, or MIP will be serviced.

The clinic is set for Monday, July 29th at the Micronesia Mall Center Court from 10am to noon or while supplies last.

For more information, call the Immunization Program at 735-7143.
