Honolulu Zoo hosts second COVID-19 vaccination event July 16

The Honolulu Zoo will host a second COVID-19 vaccination clinic this Friday, July 16, to administer second doses of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, as well as first doses for those interested. The clinic is being conducted as a partnership between the City and County of Honolulu, Hawai‘i State Department of Health, and Hawai‘i Pacific Health.

Those that received a first dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine at the Honolulu Zoo vaccination site on June 26, will be eligible to receive a second dose of the Pfizer vaccine on Friday at the zoo event. At your first vaccination appointment, you should have received a vaccination card that tells you what COVID-19 vaccine you received, the date you received it, and where you received it. Bring your vaccination card to your second vaccination appointment.

Hawai‘i Pacific Health’s Vax Squad bus will be parked in the Honolulu Zoo on July 16 from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. Individuals ages 12 and older are eligible.

Clients receiving their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine at the Honolulu Zoo site will be able to choose between the Pfizer (12 years and older) or Johnson & Johnson (18 years and older) COVID-19 vaccine. Both vaccine options will be provided free of charge. Department of Health Public Health Nurses will also be on site to answer questions about the vaccines.

Individuals can pre-register for a vaccine at HawaiiPacificHealth.org/COVIDVaxSquad or call (808)-462-5460. Guests heading to the vaccination site should report to Gate 6 on Monsarrat Avenue instead of the front entrance. Walk-ins are welcome as well. All clients heading to the vaccination site will receive complimentary admission to the zoo.

To keep the zoo animals safe, the Honolulu Zoo encourages people to wear masks near animal exhibits, keep a 6-foot distance, stay home when sick and never share food with any animal.

Guests heading to the vaccination site should bring a picture I.D., insurance card, and a face mask to be worn at all times. Minors ages 12 to 17 years old must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
