Hundreds of keiki ages 6 months to 11 years get Pfizer vaccine at Hawaii clinics
HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Nearly 400 Hawaii kids ages 6 months to 11 years got their first dose or booster shot of the Pfizer COVID vaccine on Saturday at two large Hawaii Pacific Health clinics.
The vaccination clinics were held at Kapiolani Medical Center for Women & Children and Kauai Medical Clinic.
Ryan Nakagawa’s two children were vaccinated at the Kapiolani clinic.
“My wife and I work full-time, and we want to make sure we minimize the risk of infection for everyone in our family,” he said. “We want to make sure everyone is safe and the kids are able to go to school.”
Because of the high demand for Hawaii’s youngest keiki, HPH plans to offer additional clinics.
