KAMUELA, HI – Queen’s North Hawai’i Community Hospital is now offering a second COVID-19 booster shot to those over age 50 who received their first booster shot at least four months ago.
Following the most recent guidance from the CDC regarding COVID-19 booster shots, people who received their first booster shot of any approved COVID-19 vaccine at least four months ago may receive a second booster shot of an mRNA vaccine (Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna) if they are over the age of 50.
