HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - Hawaii Pacific Health says to date, more than 10,400 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine have been administered at the Pier 2 distribution site.

HPH officials will now be providing daily updates into the vaccination efforts to keep the public informed on progress.

As of 5:30 p.m. Saturday, they said 10,434 doses have been administered, with 6,103 of them going to Kupuna ages 75 and higher. There were 1,831 vaccinations completed on Saturday alone.

4,331 vaccines have gone to people qualifying in phases 1a and 1b of the vaccine rollout plan. This includes priority healthcare workers, caregivers and other essential frontline employees.

They also said that in the coming weeks, more than 9,000 appointments already booked. Additional appointments — though likely to fill up quickly — are available for Jan. 28 and beyond for the elderly and other individuals qualified under phase 1b.

Officials added that updated numbers will be provided at noon daily. These numbers reflect those who have gotten the first dose of the vaccine.

More people will have the chance to get vaccinated as the Blaisdell Concert Hall prepares to open Monday to serve as Oahu’s second mass vaccination clinic. Read more here: Hundreds seen in soft launch of Oahu’s second mass COVID vaccination site.
