More Hawaii Health Centers To Receive Additional Vaccines For Underserved Communities
by Jim Bea Sampaga
Twelve health centers across the Hawaii state have been selected to receive additional vaccines to serve those who have been disproportionately impacted by COVID-19.
The vaccine program chose health centers that are easily accessible to the nation’s underserved communities.
The provided vaccine allocation is separate from the state’s weekly allocations. Moreover, the selected health centers will continue to follow Hawaii’s priority guidelines in administering the vaccine.
“This means more vaccines for people in Hawaii who are being hit the hardest,” said U.S. Senator Brian Schatz. “The vaccine is a miracle of modern science and will give us our lives back. I encourage everyone to get it when it’s your turn.”
The Hawaii health centers eligible to receive the additional vaccines are:
– Kalihi-Palama Health Center on Oahu
– Kokua Kalihi Valley Comprehensive Family Services on Oahu
– Waianae Coast Comprehensive Health Center on Oahu
– Waikiki Health on Oahu
– Molokai Community Health Care on Molokai
– Lanai Community Health Center on Lanai
– Waimanalo Health Center on Oahu
– Hoola Lahui Hawai‘i on Kauai
– Malama I Ke Ola Health Center on Maui
– Koolauloa Health Center on Oahu
