General Information & Additional Ways to Access Vaccine:

The Hawaiʻi Department of Health has expanded eligibility for COVID-19 vaccinations to those 16 years old and above. Those aged 16 and 17 may receive the Pfizer vaccine only because it is the sole vaccine currently approved for that age group. Those 18 years of age and older may receive the two-dose Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

Information about vaccination providers, links for appointment booking and phone numbers have been consolidated on www.mauinuistrong.info provided by the Office of the Mayor. The website’s “Get Vaccinated” button lists providers participating in both the DOH vaccination program and the Federal Pharmacy Partners Program, including Longs (CVS), Walgreens, Safeway and Costco, plus independent Maui pharmacies.

“With college and high school graduations approaching, I urge this year’s graduating class and their families to get vaccinated as soon as possible,” said Maui County Mayor Michael Victorino. “We want graduation to be a healthy and happy time for the class of 2021.”

Minit Medical Urgent Care continues to offer Moderna vaccines at it’s clinic located on specified days at the War Memorial Gym at 700 Halia Nakoa St. in Wailuku. Vaccines are by appointment only. Book online (link is updated weekly) at www.minitmed.com/vaccination-clinic . Those who experience problems booking an appointment may email: vaccine@minitmed.com or phone (808) 667-6161.

Appointments are provided on a first-come, first-served basis. Everyone must have a CONFIRMED appointment to be vaccinated. You will receive a confirmation after properly completing your appointment booking. No walk-ups will be accepted.  No other qualifications are necessary. Vaccine administration will be billed to your medical insurance. Those without medical coverage may still book an appointment at no cost.

“Stand By” Vaccines at the End of the Day

Occasionally, a few extra doses may be available at the end of the day at War Memorial Gym. Patients may stand by at 4 p.m. at the gym for one of up to 10 additional vaccinations.
