KHON2 stopped by the site on Thursday, May 13, and spoke with Dr. Melinda Ashton, who shared her thoughts on the vaccination progress with the younger age group.

“If they’re vaccinated, the CDC says those quarantines are not necessary, even if they’re exposed, so what it does, is it allows, that continual threat of interruption of their school, of their sports team or their other activities to go away.”

Hawaii Pacific Health’s mobile Vax Squad Bus began accepting children 12 and up Thursday, along with CVS and Kaiser Permanente.
