HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) – Vaccine dissemination efforts extended to West Oahu on Saturday when a family-friendly place was converted into a vaccination clinic.
Medical staff administered 40 cans of Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson and Johnson shots at the popular Wet ‘n’ Wild water park. They continue to encourage people to get the vaccination by increasing the accessibility of vaccines as state officials aim for a 70% vaccination rate in the community to lift all COVID restrictions.
“We’re really trying to normalize vaccinations. And doing so in a place like this, especially with a large population on that site, is really an opportunity for us to get out in the community and make vaccines a part of everyday family life, ”said Kaui Nishizaki of The Queen’s Health Systems.
If you missed the clinic this weekend, you have another chance. A second is planned in the park on June 26th. Insurance is not required, but ID is required.
The clinic is open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
If you show your vaccination card when visiting the water park, you will also receive a discount on entry. Click here or call 691-2221 for more information.
