The Food and Drug Administration approved COVID-19 booster shots on Thursday, Aug. 12, for those with comprimised immune systems.

Clinics are open at multiple locations across Oahu and Kauai. Appointments are not required but officials encourage folks to sign up for one. Attendees must also have received their second dose at least 28 days before getting a booster.

HPH also prefers people get a booster that is the same brand as their previous two doses, but it is not required.
