More than 1,000 people were vaccinated at a COVID-19 mass vaccination Saturday at Kaiser Permanente Hawaii’s Wailuku Medical Office.
All shots were by appointment only for both Kaiser members and nonmembers, according to a news release from the organization.
The mass vaccination was the first on Maui.
Shots also are being administered at Kaiser Permanente Maui Lani Medical Office and Kihei Clinic locations most weekdays.
“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,” said Jill Riggs, Kaiser director of clinic operations, Maui.
