Maui Health Offers One-Day Walk Up Clinic in Kīhei for Kūpuna in Phase 1B
Walk-up Kupuna Vaccinations: One Day Only in Kīhei
Maui Health hosts a walk-up registration and vaccination clinic TODAY ONLY, Friday, March 5, 2021 at the Kīhei vaccine clinic site for qualified Phase 1B kūpuna residents. The clinic runs from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., and 1 to 5 p.m.
Today’s walk-up clinic is first come, first served with the goal to help kupuna who may not have access to a computer, or need assistance setting up an email. The purpose is to vaccinate as many qualified kūpuna as possible.
“We know that there still may be some kupuna who want to be vaccinated but just don’t know how to get one,” said Mike Rembis, CEO of Maui Health. “We want to make it as easy as possible for this group. They just need to show up with their ID and our staff will walk them through the process from start to finish, including vaccinating them on the spot. No appointment needed as long as they qualify.”
Qualified kupuna should bring:
- a valid ID to verify date of birth and
- an insurance card if insured.
*Those without insurance will not be charged for the vaccine.
The Maui Health Kīhei clinic is located in the Kaiser Permanente medical clinic in the Azeka Shopping Center on South Kīhei Road.
