Hawaii is moving towards mobile support to deliver vaccines not only to convenient locations in Honolulu, but also to hard-to-reach communities.
“It’s very unconventional, but it’s a way to get involved in the community,” said Aron Dote, Strategic Communications Manager at Kamehameha School. “I know that making it convenient and easy can actually help with vaccination.”
“We want to bring the vaccine to the community,” said Mia Taylor, director of the Queens Health Systems community and post-acute services. “We all know that we all have a very busy life, so we want to bring it to the community.”
More than 300 doses of Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson vaccines were given on Saturday.
