Hawaii Pacific Health closes Straub’s vaccination clinic on Friday

Hawaii Pacific Health said with vaccination rates remaining stable, it will close the COVID-19 vaccination clinic at Straub Medical Center this Friday after its scheduled hours of 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Immunization clinics at Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children and Wilcox Medical Center will remain open, however, and HPH will continue to offer mobile immunization clinics on Oahu and Kauai to provide convenient community access.

The Straub COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic at 777 S. Hotel St. opened in October to meet increased community demand for vaccines.

The Hawaii Department of Health said 76.3% of the state’s population has completed the first round of vaccines so far, with 37.1% boost. Only 985 injections were administered overnight.

COVID-19 vaccines are available for everyone aged 5 and over, while boosters are available for people aged 12 and over. An estimated 337,000 people in Hawaii are still unvaccinated.

The COVID-19 Immunization Clinic at Kapiolani Medical Center will remain open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday to provide vaccines to people ages 5 and older.

Walk-in visits are only permitted for early adult doses; all other vaccinations require an appointment.
