Hagåtña, Guam – Operation Liberate Guam has reached its target goal of fully vaccinating 80% of the island’s adult population. To date, the Department of Public Health and Social Services (DPHSS) has certified that a total of 96,066 eligible adult individuals have received either both doses of the Pfizer or Moderna two-dose series or the Johnson & Johnson single-dose series.
“I would like to thank our hard-working men and women behind the scenes at our vaccination clinics and private medical clinics, our entire medical community, our Chief Medical Advisor Col. Mike Cruz, our Physicians Advisory Group, DPHSS, Guam National Guard, our DOE nurses, UOG, and especially all those who have been fully vaccinated for contributing to this great success,” said Acting Governor Tenorio. “I appeal to all eligible individuals in our community, especially those working with our most vulnerable populations, to please get vaccinated as it is: FREE, accessible, and effective. Lastly, I want to commend our Governor Lou Leon Guerrero for leading us in this effort and for utilizing her nursing skills and leadership to get us to this point.”
