COVID Vaccinations (Jan 15, 2021)

The State of Hawaii has moved into Tier 1B for COVID vaccinations. This group includes those over 75 years of age, Frontline Essential Workers, and First Responders. Flight Attendants qualify as Frontline Essential Workers in the transportation sector. To say there is a lack of clear information on the Hawaii State COVID-19 vaccine site would be an understatement, but you can check their website to see the specifics for each island as there may be some differences.   

  

Kaiser Permanente is administering the vaccination to their members who qualify under Tier 1B: seniors 75 years and older and frontline essential workers. You may receive an email from Kaiser if you are 75 years and older that will allow you to schedule. Both groups can call 808-432-0000 to schedule an appointment. For frontline essential workers, you will need to show them your badge and photo ID to prove that you are an essential worker.

 

HMSA does not have the same option since they are not a hospital but are an insurance provider and are limited to what they can do by the Department of Health. They recommend contacting your primary care physician. Here is HMSA's website on COVID

 

Hawaii Pacific Health will be managing the mass vaccination site at Pier 2. Patients are encouraged to sign-up for or activate their MyChart accounts as it will be the easiest way to schedule vaccination appointments Sign up for MyChart hereHere's the link to schedule an appointment request for seniors 75 years and older if you do not have MyChart. The person accompanying the senior over 75 can also get the vaccination but must make arrangements when they make the appointment for the senior. It appears Hawaii Pacific Health is not currently scheduling appointments for frontline essential workers. 

 

I understand the frustration many of us are feeling with the lack of clear information about how to schedule our vaccinations. It takes a lot of perseverance. Lani and I were finally able to schedule our appointments at Kaiser. My recommendation is to contact your Primary Care Physician or medical group and attempt to schedule your appointment. Mention that you are an Essential Worker in the aviation transportation sector and qualify under Tier 1B. Since some providers are prioritizing the over 75 group in the 1B Tier, you may not be able to schedule your appointment until more vaccine doses are available. The State is planning to open a second mass vaccination facility shortly. 

 

  Aloha,
Kevin
