HONOLULU (KHON2) — Several testing and vaccination events will be held in various locations in West O’ahu, according to the Hawai’i Department of Health (DOH).

These events will take place on Saturdays beginning Aug. 28 through Oct. 2.

“We recognize that for many, historic inequities, misinformation and insufficient access to care have contributed to a lack of confidence in COVID-19 vaccines,” said State Epidemiologist Dr. Sarah Kemble. “We thank our West Oʻahu community for coming together to support vaccination and testing. DOH is working hand-in-hand with community leaders to create welcoming, collaborative environments that will lead to healthier communities.”
