QNHCH Reaches 10,000 Vaccine Milestone!

03.24.2021

Queen’s North Hawai’i Community Hospital (QNHCH) provided its 10,000th COVID-19 vaccine today.  Mr. Bryan Lindsey received his second Pfizer dose today and was the 10,000th patient in the QNHCH COVID vaccine clinic.  “This is an important milestone for our community and in our nation’s fight again COVID-19,” said Cindy Kamikawa, QNHCH president. “We are thrilled that we have been able to provide protection against COVID-19 through the vaccine to so many in our community.”

QNHCH continues to schedule vaccinations for those age 65 and older and those age 16-64 who are at highest risk, 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, those on oxygen with cardiac or respiratory disease, and those with cancer or autoimmune disease undergoing chemotherapy.

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.

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. More information is available from the state at https://hawaiicovid19.com/vaccine
