Maui Health Expands Vaccine Clinic and Offers One-Day Walk Up Clinic in Kihei for Kupuna in Phase 1B
Wailuku, Maui, HI (March 4, 2021) – Maui Health is pleased to announce that it will expand its COVID-19 vaccinations to include Phase 1B residents ages 70 and older, beginning Monday March 8 at all Maui Health vaccine clinic locations and will also host a walk-up registration and vaccination clinic this Friday ONLY at the Kihei vaccine clinic site for qualified Phase 1B residents.
The walk-up clinic scheduled for Friday, March 5 will offer walk-in vaccine registration assistance and vaccinations for qualified Phase 1B kupuna at our Kihei clinic location ONLY from 9 am – 12 pm and 1pm – 5pm. This is a one-day event only. It is first come, first served with the goal to help kupuna who may not have access to a computer, or need assistance setting up an email and to vaccinate as many qualified kupuna as possible.
“We know that there still may be some kupuna who want to be vaccinated but just don’t know how to get one,” said Mike Rembis, CEO of Maui Health. “We want to make it as easy as possible for this group. They just need to show up with their ID and our staff will walk them through the process from start to finish, including vaccinating them on the spot. No appointment needed as long as they qualify.”
Walk-up kupuna vaccinations are for one day only at the Kihei clinic and while supplies last. Please bring a valid ID to verify your date of birth and your insurance card. You are not required to have insurance and you will not be charged to receive the vaccine. The Maui Health Kihei clinic is located in the Kaiser Permanente medical clinic in the Azeka Shopping Center on South Kihei Road.
For residents under 70 years of age and who qualify as a Phase 1A health care worker or Phase 1B essential worker, they can sign up for a vaccine appointment at mauihealth.org/covidvaccine. The first step is to fill out the Vaccine Health Record Form.
