Schatz: More COVID-19 Vaccines Heading To Hawai‘i, 12 Health Centers Across The State Eligible To Receive Additional Vaccines For Underserved Communities

12 Health Centers Across Hawai‘i Selected For Federal Program, Will Increase State’s Vaccine Supply

WASHINGTON – Today, the Health Resources and Services Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced that 12 health centers across Hawai‘i have been selected to participate in a COVID-19 vaccine program aimed at providing more vaccines to those disproportionately impacted by COVID-19.

“This means more vaccines for people in Hawai‘i who are being hit the hardest,” said U.S. Senator Brian Schatz (D-Hawai‘i). “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 vaccine allocation provided for this program is separate from the state’s weekly allocations. This program is providing vaccines to health centers as a way to increase access to vaccines for select health centers serving the nation’s underserved communities. Health centers will continue to follow the State of Hawai‘i’s priority guidelines in administering the vaccine.

Hawai‘i health centers eligible to receive additional vaccines include:

  • Kalihi-Palama Health Center on Oahu
