Frequently asked questions about COVID-19 vaccines

Vaccines Availability

Which vaccines are currently available on Maui?

The Pfizer/BioNTech, Moderna and Johnson& Johnson vaccines are available in Maui County (subject to supply).  The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines require two (2) doses, 21-28 days apart. The Johnson & Johnson vaccine requires one (1) dose. Pfizer is the only vaccine that can be administered to those ages 16 and over. All other vaccines are given to those 18 years and older.

How much does the vaccine cost?

There is no cost for the vaccine.  There may be a modest administrative fee, that your health insurance should cover.  Additionally, the federal government may also cover the administrative cost for any uninsured individuals.  Speak with your provider for further information.

Who can get a COVID-19 vaccine?

Those ages 16 and above can receive a COVID-19 vaccination in Maui County. Those aged 16 and 17 may receive the Pfizer vaccine only because it is the sole vaccine currently approved for that age group. Those 18 years of age and older may receive the two-dose Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine.


Vaccines administered in Hawaii

How are vaccines administered in Hawaii?

The COVID-19 vaccination program is a national initiative under the Centers for Disease Control, administered in the state by the Hawaii Department of Health (DOH). The County of Maui is working closely with DOH in implementing a robust, comprehensive vaccination plan to ensure the COVID-19 vaccine is available to residents in an efficient, orderly manner.

Find the weekly progress in the vaccine distribution and administration statewide and in each county, click below. This data outlined reflects only what has been inputted into VAMS, and vaccine administered by our federal pharmacy program partners. The VA and military are not included in these counts.

Other Vaccination Information

Do I have to get the vaccine if I’ve already had COVID?

It is recommended you still get the vaccine because the protection and immunity of post-virus antibodies may weaken and could eventually disappear over time. There is a minimum wait time between infection and vaccination.  DOH tells people to wait at least 14 days after an infection to get your vaccine.

Should children be vaccinated?

No, not at this time. The Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine is only for those age 16 and older. No vaccine has yet been approved for children.

What can I do to protect myself from contracting COVID while I wait for my vaccine?

Continue with wearing face masks, physical distancing, avoiding crowds, and frequent hand washing to protect yourself and others prior to, and after, receiving both doses of the vaccine.

Do I still have to wear a mask after getting both vaccine doses?

Anthony Fauci, M.D., the nation’s leading infectious disease expert, recommends everyone to continue following all public health guidelines until the CDC has determined the vaccine has established “herd immunity.”

What are the most common side effects after getting a COVID-19 vaccine?

After getting vaccinated, you might have some side effects, which are normal signs that your body is building protection. Common side effects are pain, redness, and swelling in the arm where you received the shot, as well as tiredness, headache, muscle pain, chills, fever, and nausea throughout the rest of the body. These side effects could affect your ability to do daily activities, but they should go away in a few days.

OTHER FAQS from CDC

Maui County Residents Free COVID-19 Testing

The County of Maui is providing FREE COVID-19 TESTING for residents at Minit Medical Clinics in Kahului, Kihei and Lahaina. You do not need insurance or have to meet any criteria to be tested. This free community test is not valid for travel. Must pre-register for appointment, visit websiteor call 808-667-6161, ext 7.


Should I Be Tested?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has guidance for who should be tested, but decisions about testing are made by state and local health departments and healthcare providers.

Not everyone needs to be tested. However, if you have symptoms of COVID-19 and want to be tested, you should contact your healthcare provider to discuss your symptoms or any exposure you may have had. You may be evaluated according to CDC and Hawaii Department of Health guidance, to determine whether or not you should be tested for COVID-19.

For your safety and safety of others, be sure to contact your healthcare provider in advance for instructions before your visit.

What to Do if You Want to Be Tested?

If you have a primary care physician (PCP), your first step should be to call them and discuss your symptoms (if any), any exposure you have had and your potential risk.

If you do not have a PCP on Maui or are unable to reach your provider you can contact one of the testing sites. Patients meeting CDC and Hawaii Department of Health Guidelines may be tested. For your safety and the safety of health care providers, please be sure to contact the provider for instructions before your visit.

Where Can I get a COVID-19 Test?

  • Drive-through COVID-19 testing are scheduled periodically. Please watch for announcements from the County of Maui for drive-through testing dates, times, pre-registration instructions and other information.
  • Various healthcare organizations in Maui County offer COVID-19 tests. Please contact the providers directly, or visit their websites for information on testing services and criteria, hours of operation, appointment scheduling, and patient instructions. This list may be updated as new information becomes available.

What Else Do I Need to Know About Testing?

Testing is not perfect. There have been patients that originally tested negative and later tested positive.  For this reason, please connect with your PCP or another provider to continue monitoring your symptoms if you have them. Also, be aware it may be necessary to continue to be tested if you are an essential employee or have repeated exposure.

What Should I Do After Being Tested?

Between the time you are tested and receive your results you must remain quarantined. This means you may not leave your home and should make every possible effort to limit exposure to other household members.

For more information on how to care for yourself and protect other people in your home and community, visit the CDC website.

Who Should be Tested? Not Everyone Needs to Be Tested for COVID-19.

Here is some information that might help in making decisions about seeking care or testing.

  • Most people have mild illness and are able to recover at home.
  • There is no treatment specifically approved for this virus.
  • Testing results may be helpful to inform decision-making about who you come in contact with.
  • CDC has guidance for who should be tested, but decisions about testing are at the discretion of state and local health departments and/or individual clinicians.

For additional steps to care for yourself and to help protect other people in your home and community, visit the CDC website.

How to Get Tested?

If you have symptoms of COVID-19 and want to get tested, try calling your state or local health department or a medical provider. While supplies of these tests are increasing, it may still be difficult to find a place to get tested.

How to Prevent the Spread of COVID-19

Following simple steps can prevent the spread of COVID-19 and reduce its impact on our communities.

Stay home if you start to feel ill.

Unless you are going out to seek medical attention, stay at home if you are feeling sick, especially if you have symptoms of fever or cough.

Watch these videos to learn more about staying home when you are sick and the importance of isolation and quarantine.

Avoid close contact with people (social distancing).

  • Try to keep your distance from other people (at least 6 feet or 2 arms lengths)
  • This is especially important for people who are at higher risk of getting very sick and experiencing severe disease.
  • Watch this video to learn more about social distancing.

Wash your hands often.

Use soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.

If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. If your hands are visibly dirty, then make sure to use soap and running water since sanitizing products will not remove the dirt.

Watch this video to learn more about how washing your hands can prevent disease.

Clean and disinfect

Clean frequently touched objects and surfaces using a household cleaning spray or wipe.

Everyone can pitch in by practicing routine cleaning of frequently touched surfaces (for example: tables, doorknobs, light switches, handles, desks, toilets, faucets, sinks) with household cleaners. Use EPA-registered disinfectants that are appropriate for the surface and follow the label instructions.

Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.

Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

Cover your coughs and sneezes.

Use a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. If you don’t have a tissue, use your elbow.

  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow.
  • Throw used tissues in the trash.
  • Immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, clean your hands with a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.

Get the flu shot.

People with seasonal influenza will exhibit similar signs and symptoms as COVID-19 (fever and cough). If more people are protected against influenza, this will reduce confusion and the burden on our healthcare system.
