QNHCH expands vaccinations for 65 + and high risk


Queen’s North Hawai’i Community Hospital (QNHCH) is scheduling vaccinations for those age 65 and older and those age 16-64 who are at highest risk beginning Monday, March 15, consistent with the Hawai’i Department of Health.   

Highest risk is defined by the Department of Health as those age 16-64 with:

  • Dialysis dependent end-stage renal disease
  • Oxygen dependent respiratory disease
  • Oxygen dependent cardiac disease
  • Cancer or autoimmune disease undergoing active chemotherapy or immunosuppressive medication therapy at an infusion center

QNHCH offers the Pfizer vaccine.  Vaccines continue to be offered to health care workers and essential workers defined as workers whose duties must be performed onā€site and require being in close proximity (<6 feet) to the public or coworkers, and are essential to the functioning of society.  Examples of essential workers include first responders, critical transportation and utility workers, teachers and childcare and educational support staff, and essential government employees.

Vaccinations are by appointment only.  To request an appointment, email QNHCHvaccine@queens.org and include your name, date of birth, phone number, and employer if you are an essential worker, or call 808-881-4668.  Anyone who previously emailed or called while they were ineligible and are now eligible are asked to email again.

We appreciate the community’s patience as we accommodate the high volume of requests.  Those not yet eligible are asked to follow the news regarding vaccination availability for other groups.
