Wailuku, Maui, HI (April 2, 2021) – Maui Health is pleased to announce that we will follow the recent announcement by the Maui District Health Office as well as Hawaii and Kauai counties and expand our vaccine efforts.
Beginning Monday, April 5, 2021, we will open vaccine registration to all residents ages 16 and older*. “With the support of the state and our county district health office, we are excited to expand our vaccination efforts and quickly vaccinate our community members - moving us another step closer to reducing the COVID-19 risk on Maui,” said Mike Rembis, Maui Health CEO.
The Maui Health VAMS portal is open for appointments for those that are already registered within VAMS. If you do not have a VAMS account, you can begin the process by completing the Maui Health Vaccine Health Record Form available on the Maui Health website (www.mauihealth.org/covidvaccine). Vaccines are administered by appointment only, and they do fill up fast. If you need assistance with registration, please contact us at either our hotline (242-2273) or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Maui Health has two vaccination sites to choose from: MMMC-main lobby and our new south side location at the Grand Wailea Resort.
Maui Health is proud to share that after the close of today’s clinics, we will have provided nearly 33,000 vaccines to Phase 1A, 1B, and 1C Maui County residents. Our clinics continue to administer almost half (49%) of all vaccines administered across the entire county with about 66,533 total vaccinations reported for Maui County by the Hawaii Department of Health. Maui County has also vaccinated the second largest percentage of total population in the state and this is largely because of our efforts. Additionally, yesterday, Thursday, April 1, marked the 100th day of COVID-19 vaccines administered by Maui Health. To celebrate, each vaccine recipient was provided a gift and everyone who received their second dose also received a COVID-19 vaccine limited edition commemorative pin.
