This program was created last year, by the state, in partnership with different community businesses, to encourage Hawai’i residents to get their COVID-19 vaccine.

Miles Ichinose, a McDonald’s of Hawaii Owner & Operator said “One of the best things you can do
for yourself to help in not getting COVID is to get the vaccine.” “We think that it not only helps
yourself, but it helps your family and it helps your community too, so please do it if you can.”
