The Hawaii Department of Health is following CDC COVID-19 vaccine guidance. Updates will be posted to this page as they are available.
Essential hospital workers and first responders, those in phase 1A, have been offered to be vaccinated. If you are part of phase 1A and have been missed in being vaccinated, please contact your employer.
Providers will be notified of their specific points of access for vaccination through multiple communications channels. We will be communicating directly with those organizations that have filled out the independent practice survey circulated by the Department of Health. In addition, the Department of Health communications team will make public announcements through social and traditional media as well as postings on the Department of Health website providers page. For those who live and work on the neighbor islands, also watch for communications from your County District Health Offices.
