Hilo High Holds COVID Vaccination Clinic for Students, Families

Approximately 100 students received one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at Hilo High School’s first vaccination clinic on Friday, May 28.

As Big Island hospitals have ended their mass clinics, the Hawai‘i Department of Education (HIDOE) has taken it upon themselves to work to get students vaccinated before the 2021-22 school year in collaboration with local pharmacies and the Department of Health. Schools across the state are holding clinics, which is part of HIDOE’s effort to bring students back to campus full time after a year of distance and blended learning.
