Pago Pago, AMERICAN SAMOA — The Department of Health’s medical staff is at the Gov. H. Rex Lee Auditorium, where DoH has started another round of COVID-19 vaccinations for three-days this week — Monday, Mar. 15, today, Wednesday, Mar. 17th and Friday, Mar. 19th from 8a.m. to 3p.m.
In a health advisory issued Monday, Dept. of Health said both first and second doses of the COVID-19 vaccine are available. And the public is asked to bring a photo ID and hospital card. If no hospital card, bring two photo IDs.
“A kind reminder to bring your vaccine card if you are coming back for a second dose,” said DoH noting that next week Wednesday, March 24, the Island Wide Math Competition is scheduled at the Lee Auditorium and no vaccines will be available at that location during that time. Anyone due for second doses on that day please go to the Tafuna clinic.
