Kaiser Permanente vaccinated more than 1,000 people against COVID-19 in one-day event.
WAILUKU, Hawaii — Kaiser Permanente Hawaii, the state’s largest integrated health care provider, held a mass vaccination event March 27, 2021, at its Wailuku Medical Office. More than 1,000 eligible individuals, both Kaiser Permanente members and nonmembers, were vaccinated at this one-day event. All shots were by appointment only.
This is the latest in Kaiser Permanente’s vaccination efforts. The health care provider has held 3 mass vaccination events on Oahu; this is its first on Maui. Shots are also being administered at Kaiser Permanente Maui Lani Medical Office and Kihei Clinic location most weekdays.
“We are committed to improving the health of the communities we serve and are excited to be offering this mass vaccination event to the community,” said Jill Riggs, director of clinic operations in Maui, for Kaiser Permanente Hawaii. “We want to make it easier and more convenient for ‘kupuna’ and others to be vaccinated so we can start to put the pandemic behind us.”
This is just the latest effort by Kaiser Permanente to ramp up vaccination administration. The health care provider has administered more than 58,000 doses of vaccines in Hawaii and operates multiple vaccination sites around the state.
