Maui Health clinic at Grand Wailea to offer Moderna
The Maui News
Maui Health will begin administering Moderna vaccines for all new first-dose appointments at its Grand Wailea Resort clinic starting Wednesday.
Residents who received their first dose of the Pfizer vaccine at the Wailea clinic can still receive the second dose of Pfizer at that site, Maui Health said in a news release Sunday. Maui Memorial Medical Center’s main lobby vaccine clinic will continue to administer the Pfizer vaccine only.
Pfizer is the only vaccine approved for 16- and 17-year-olds. Vaccine recipients under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. The Moderna vaccine is approved for 18 years of age and older.
Maui Health has provided more than 42,000 vaccines to Maui County residents to date and continues to vaccinate all residents 16 and older.
On Saturday, the Maui Health vaccination team returned to Lanai to complete just over 450 vaccinations, according to spokeswoman Tracy Dallarda, including second doses needed from last month’s clinic and first doses for eligible Lanai residents 16 and older.
Vaccines are administered by appointment only, which can be scheduled through the Maui Health Vaccine Administration Management System, or VAMS, portal. For assistance, contact the hotline at 242-2273 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
