03.16.2021

HONOLULU – The Queen’s Health Systems (Queen’s) reached an exciting milestone today, administering its 100,000th dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Bonnie Tam Hoy of Hawaiʻi Kai received the shot at the Queen’s Conference Center vaccination clinic at The Queen’s Medical Center – Punchbowl.

“It was super easy. I was nervous coming here, but the process was easy,” said Tam Hoy. “Everybody should come. I have friends that were having second thoughts about it, but I encourage everyone to come on down. It’s so easy, and so we can travel again.”

It was just three months ago, on December 15, 2020, that Queen’s became the first health care organization in Hawaiʻi to receive and administer the COVID-19 vaccine.

“Mahalo to everyone in our community who has come forward to get vaccinated. It has been a rewarding experience for our caregivers to provide this important layer of protection in the fight against COVID-19. We look forward to receiving more vaccine shipments and expanding our reach into the community, so we can continue to help safeguard Hawaiʻi’s families,” said Jill Hoggard Green, PhD, RN, President and CEO of The Queen’s Health Systems.

Queen’s is currently offering vaccines to people 65 years of age and older, those with high risk medical conditions, and select groups of essential workers. Visit https://covid.queens.org/vaccine/ or call 808-691-2222 to see if you are eligible and for appointment availability.
