The Maui District Health Office has four Moderna clinics planned this month at the University of Hawaiʻi Maui College. These clinics have transitioned from the previous drive up service to walk-in instead.

J&J clinic that was planned by the Maui District Health Office at the University of Hawaiʻi Maui College in Kahului on April 21, has been cancelled, and is being replaced by an evening Moderna clinic, with appointments being offered between 2:30 and 8 p.m. on the same day. The Hawai‘i Department of Health is pausing use of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine while the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the US Food and Drug Administration review data involving six cases in which individuals who received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine developed blood clots.

The Moderna vaccine requires two doses, taken four weeks apart.

For all appointments, individuals seeking a vaccine are asked to download and print the vaccine screening form in the “related files” section and bring it to their appointment along with their ID and confirmation email.

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: [email protected] 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.

“Stand By” Vaccines at the End of the Day
