KAPOLEI, Hawaii (KHON2) — More providers are offering drive-thru flu shots for the public.
On Saturday, Oct. 10, it was Foodland Pharmacy at Ka Makana Alii in Kapolei. The retailer is hoping to offer flu shots at all of its stores.
“This year, we made a significant push to be at Foodland properties to provide this service, especially during COVID-19 times,” said Foodland Pharmacy manager Trenton Teruya. “It’s really recommended by the CDC that everybody does get their flu shot this year. So we made it a concerted effort to be at every Foodland property on the island and in the state.”
The drive-thru clinic opened at 6:30 a.m.
Teruya said that more than 50 people got flu shots in the first two to three hours. Flu shots were available for those with insurance. They also had to be 5 years old or older.
