Three day vax shut-down cancelled in American Samoa--a new plan is in the works

Pago Pago, AMERICAN SAMOA — Instead of three-consecutive days of mass vaccinations with ASG operations closed down, the COVID-19 Task Force has come up with a new plan, with vaccinations to be administered on consecutive Wednesdays — Dec. 1st, 8th and 15th — with village and school based clinics set up for Tutuila island.

The initially plan, which prompted push-back from the private sector, would have been Dec. 1st to Dec. 3rd, with other government operations shut down during the mass vaccination period.

The latest information received by Samoa News following Monday’s task force meeting, in which a presentation was made details how the newly proposed mass vaccination plan is to be carried out.

• School-based vaccine sites will be set up for the eligible school-age population at elementary and high schools as well as extended Tafuna clinic hours on Tuesday and Thursdays to offer vaccines from 4p.m. to 7p.m.

• Samoan Affairs village mayors would identify unvaccinated residents requesting vaccines at the village level and a request for a village-based vaccine sites would be submitted to the Health Department.
