Starting Friday, September 9, 2022, we will begin administering the new Pfizer bivalent boosters for ages 12 and older.
September 2, 2022
Yesterday (9/1/22), an advisory panel for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) endorsed Pfizer’s bivalent booster for people ages 12 and older as well as Moderna’s bivalent booster for adults ages 18 and older. The updated boosters are reformulated to protect against both the original COVID-19 strain and the most recent omicron subvariants BA.4 and BA.5, the latter of which is dominant across the U.S. and Hawaii with both strains accounting for 95% of all COVID-19 cases in Hawaii now.
The CDC continues to recommend Pfizer’s monovalent boosters for children ages 5 through 11.
The state Department of Health has placed an initial order for the “updated boosters” and expect arrival within a few days. Maui Health’s vaccine clinic will administer the updated (bivalent) booster as soon as they are received. In the interim, our vaccine clinic will still administer the monovalent booster dose for children ages 5 through 11 only, and will continue to administer all primary, secondary, and third doses to individuals six months of age and older.
Maui Health is currently vaccinating all eligible residents age 6 months and older.*
As of July 15, 2022, Maui Health is now administering the COVID-19 vaccine for children ages 6 months - 5 years old. For this age group, parents are strongly encouraged to make an appointment and complete the preregistration process prior to their visit.
Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
*For children ages 6 months - 5 years old, Maui Health offers both Moderna and Pfizer vaccines, based on available supply. Children must receive the same vaccine for all doses in primary series.
All eligible residents ages 6 months and older, including the expanded booster dose individuals, can walk-in for their vaccine anytime during regular clinic hours. Qualified individuals can still book an appointment in VAMS (vams.cdc.gov), if preferred.
