In a news release on February 22, Ige said it had postponed vaccination due to a shortage of vaccines arriving in the state.
“I felt the urgent need to vaccinate nursing home residents, Kupuna over 75, medical professionals, teachers and other essential workers first,” he said. “Hawaii residents are advised to be vaccinated when it’s your turn, keep wearing a mask, and wash your hands frequently, physically away.”
Ige’s 65 cabinets and staff also received the Moderna vaccine. All of them are scheduled for a second dose in late March.
