Kaiser Permanente Hawaiʻi staff and physicians spent Veterans Day hosting COVID-19 vaccination clinics across the state for 5-11 year old children. Combined, the clinics administered hundreds of pediatric doses yesterday.  

To date, Kaiser Permanente health care providers have administered more than 227,000 doses of adult and keiki COVID-19 vaccines at  multiple vaccination sites across the state.

“Many parents have been anxiously awaiting these vaccinations so they can further protect their young children from COVID-19, and now we’re one step closer to putting this pandemic behind us,” said John Yang, MD, president and medical director for the Hawaii Permanente Medical Group. “Vaccination is one of the most important tools we have to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our communities, so we urge everyone who’s eligible and has not yet been vaccinated to consider making an appointment.”
