Aiga busses with banners giving free rides to vaccine sites
Pago Pago, AMERICAN SAMOA — This Samoa News photo taken around 12:30p.m Monday afternoon this week shows two bus drivers and one of the buses, at the parking lot of the Gov. H. Rex Lee Auditorium, the venue of the COVID-19 vaccination clinic.
The buses with COVID-19 banners on them transport individuals to the Lee Auditorium and the Tafuna Health Center, vaccination sites, “free of charge”. They return for pick-up every two hours. Call DoH hotline 219 for more details.
The new bus ride initiative on Tutuila started last Friday and will continue on all other vaccination days Monday, Wednesday, Friday, starting at 7am from Tula — far East side — and Fagalii — far West side.
There’s no clinic on Wednesday this week, at the Lee Auditorium due to the Island Wide Math competition, but vaccines at this site will resume this Friday.
