Queen’s North Hawaii Community Hospital in Waimea is now offering the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccination to all community health care providers and their staff members who work with patients.

In addition to physicians, this includes dentists, optometrists and opticians, chiropractors, private/home nursing agencies, physical, occupational, and massage therapists, pharmacists, aestheticians, and any other licensed healthcare workers.

If intrested, a representative from the health care organization/office should email the QNHCH Healthcare Provider Vaccination Request form (available online at www.nhch.com under “Latest Updates”) to QNHCHVaccine@queens.org.

Non-health care providers are asked to follow the news regarding vaccination availability for other groups.
