PC: Hawai‘i Department of Health

The Hawaiʻi Department of Health continues to receive, distribute and administer COVID-19 vaccines with an estimated 91,700 doses received statewide to date.

This includes 54,600 Pfizer-BioNTech doses and 37,100 doses of the Moderna vaccine.

So far, more than 35,000 vaccinations have been administered statewide.

An additional 17,550 doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine have been ordered for delivery next week. Health officials say thousands more Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech doses may be ordered this weekend for delivery next week.

Pharmacies continue to administer vaccinations at long-term care facilities around the state. Thousands of residents and employees at those facilities have already been vaccinated and first-dose vaccinations are complete at 22 of those facilities.

Independent licensed healthcare professionals and staff who are part of Phase 1a continue to be vaccinated at area hospitals. Independent healthcare organizations that have not yet arranged for vaccinations are asked to complete a survey to facilitate the logistical planning for the vaccination of their high-risk workers.

Details on how people age 75 and older can register for vaccinations can be expected as soon as next week.

The Department of Health continues to work with a large cross section of organizations to further define their place in Phase 1b and the number of vaccines needed to cover their workforce.

Locations and opening dates of large PODs (points of dispensing) will be announced soon.

Here on Maui, Maui Health expanded its COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic to include vaccinations for Hawaiʻi residents that fall within the CDC identified Phase 1A and Phase 1B vaccine prioritization timeline.
