Queen’s North Hawai’i Community Hospital on the Big Island is offering the Pfizer vaccination for those age 6 months and over. Anyone under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
The QNHCH Vaccination Clinic is open on Wednesdays from 11 am – 3 pm BY APPOINTMENT ONLY – call 808-881-4668 or email [email protected].
Queen’s North Hawai’i Community Hospital is now offering the Pfizer bivalent booster for those 5 years and older who have already completed their primary COVID vaccination series.
The updated COVID-19 booster was formulated to better protect against the most recently circulating COVID-19 variant. The new booster can help restore protection that has waned since previous vaccinations and was designed to provide broader protection against newer variants.
The bivalent vaccine is only for a booster dose and is not approved for the primary series or supplemental dose for the immunocompromised. People are eligible for the bivalent booster two months after their last COVID vaccine dose.
Regular COVID-19 vaccinations continue to be available for adults as well as children as young as six months.
The QNHCH COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic is located in the annex on the south side of hospital campus near the emergency room. Those under age 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) strongly recommends you get vaccinated. The vaccine will help protect you from getting COVID-19. If you still get infected after you get vaccinated, the vaccine may prevent serious illness. By getting vaccinated, you can also help protect people around you.
No. None of the COVID-19 vaccines currently authorized for use or in development in the United States use the live virus that causes COVID-19. However, it typically takes a few weeks for the body to build immunity after vaccination. That means it is possible you could be infected with the virus that causes COVID-19 just before or just after vaccination and get sick.
Yes. The CDC recommends you get vaccinated even if you have already had COVID-19 because you can catch it more than once. While you may have some short-term antibody protection after recovering from COVID-19, we don’t know how long this protection will last.
Yes, with updated published results, Pfizer has been given an Emergency Use Authorization by the U.S. FDA for children ages 5-17.
Yes. COVID-19 vaccination is especially important for people with underlying health problems like heart disease, lung disease, diabetes, and obesity. People with these conditions are more likely to get very sick from COVID-19.
No. While you may have some short-term antibody protection after recovering from COVID-19, we don’t know how long this protection lasts. Vaccination is the best protection, and it is safe. People who get COVID-19 can have serious illnesses, and some have debilitating symptoms that persist for months.
There may be side effects, but they should go away within a few days. Possible side effects include a sore arm, headache, fever, or body aches. This does not mean you have COVID-19. Side effects are signs that the vaccine is working to build immunity. If they don’t go away in a week, or you have more serious symptoms, call your doctor.
Because all COVID-19 vaccines are new, it will take more time and more people getting vaccinated to learn about very rare or possible long-term side effects. At least 8 weeks’ worth of safety data were gathered in the clinical trials for all the authorized vaccines, and it is unusual for vaccine side effects to appear more than 8 weeks after vaccination.
All COVID-19 vaccines were tested in clinical trials involving tens of thousands of people to make sure they meet safety standards and protect adults of different ages, races, and ethnicities. There were no serious safety concerns. The CDC and the FDA will keep monitoring the vaccines to look for safety issues after they are authorized and in use.
People with HIV infection, other immunocompromising conditions, or who take immunosuppressive medications or therapies might be at an increased risk for severe COVID-19. Data is not currently available to establish safety and efficacy of the vaccine in these groups. These individuals may still receive the COVID-19 vaccine unless otherwise contraindicated. Individuals should be counseled about: unknown vaccine safety and efficacy profiles in immunocompromised persons, potential for reduced immune responses, need to continue to follow all current guidance to protect themselves against COVID-19.
There is no data on the safety of the COVID-19 vaccine in pregnant women. Studies are ongoing and more are planned. If a woman is part of a group (e.g., healthcare personnel) who is recommended to receive a COVID-19 vaccine and is pregnant, she may choose to be vaccinated. A discussion with her healthcare provider can help her make an informed decision. Considerations for vaccination: level of COVID-19 community transmission, risk of acquisition – her personal risk of contracting COVID-19 (by occupation or other activities), the risks of COVID-19 to her and potential risks to the fetus, the efficacy of the vaccine, the known side effects of the vaccine, the lack of data about the vaccine during pregnancy.
There is no data on the safety of COVID-19 vaccines in lactating women or the effects of mRNA vaccines on the breastfed infant or milk production/excretion. mRNA vaccines are not considered live virus vaccines and are not thought to be a risk to the breastfeeding infant. If a lactating woman is part of a group (e.g., healthcare personnel) who is recommended to receive a COVID-19 vaccine, she may choose to be vaccinated.
All recipients who receive the vaccine are encouraged to enroll in v-safe https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/safety/vsafe.html. This is a smartphone tool you can use to tell the CDC if you have any side effects after getting a COVID-19 vaccine. If you report serious side effects, someone from the CDC will call to follow up.
If you received a vaccination at any of the clinics operated by The Queen’s Health System please email [email protected] to request a replacement card.
