“Our best defense against COVID-19 is the vaccine,” said HPH President and CEO Ray Vara. “This second bus will allow our team to help meet that demand and get more people in our communities vaccinated, especially in areas of need like West O‘ahu where obstacles to getting vaccinated may be challenging for residents.”

HPH reported the Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines will be available at all of its mobile vaccine clinic locations. There will be more than 20 mobile clinics scheduled through December.
