HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - After seven months of operation, Hawaii Pacific Health has closed its Pier 2 vaccination site.

Since it opened in January, officials said more than 184,000 vaccine doses have been administered at the state’s first mass vaccination center.

When demand was highest, the site averaged 2,500 vaccine doses a day. But demand has since dropped and on Saturday, the clinic only administered 235 doses.

Because of this, the clinic moved to a new location on Monday. Shots are now available for those 12 and older at Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children.

Scheduled appointments and walk-ins are available from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, and 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday.

Hawaii Pacific Health said the relocation of the Pier 2 vaccine clinic to Kapiolani was made to prepare for the anticipated availability of COVID vaccines for children younger than 12.

Besides the new Kapiolani location, Hawaii Pacific Health said it also offers vaccinations at two Straub medical clinics: Ward Village Clinic & Urgent Care and Doctors on Call at Sheraton Waikiki. Walk-ins are available from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. and are only offering the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

Mobile vaccinations are also still available at various sites.
