U.S. Naval Hospital Guam receives COVID-19 vaccine doses, announces distribution priority

Commander, Joint Region Marianas Public Affairs Office

U.S. Naval Hospital Guam has received its first COVID-19 vaccine doses. Vaccinations are slated to begin January 4, 2021 for designated personnel.

The Department of Defense has a prioritized phased approach for administering the vaccine to strengthen DoD’s ability to protect our people, maintain readiness, and support the national COVID-19 response.

DoD received a limited quantity of vaccine doses in its initial shipment and will only administer the vaccine to phase 1-A personnel, to include healthcare providers and support staff, emergency services, and public safety personnel at this time.

Joint Region Marianas installations expect to receive additional shipments in the coming weeks to administer to eligible DoD-affiliated individuals, as production and distribution increases.

All beneficiaries are kindly asked to remain patient as shipments continue to arrive and more vaccines can be administered.
