International Market Place to hold vaccination clinics

International Market Place and The Queen’s Health Systems have teamed up to hold a series of free mobile vaccination clinics starting this Friday.

Held on the third level of International Market Place, the clinics will take place from noon to 5 p.m. for the next three Fridays: May 28, June 4 and June 11.

The program is open to the public, and those 12 and over are eligible. Walks-in are accepted, but booking an appointment here in advance is recommended. 

“We are pleased to collaborate with International Market Place to provide this important layer of protection in the fight against Covid-19,” said Jill Hoggard Green, president and CEO of The Queen’s Health Systems, in a statement. “Being that this center sits on land owned by Queen Emma Land Company, and dedicated to our founders Queen Emma and King Kamehameha IV, this vaccination clinic helps extend the mission and legacy of our founders. We recognize the impact Covid-19 has had on all of us, and by coming together we are making a difference in improving the health and well-being of our community.”

Breana Grosz, the general manager of International Market Place said that the shopping and dining center is “pleased to support our community by making it easy and convenient for kamaaina to get their Covid-19 vaccinations here in Waikiki should they choose to.”

A group of community organizations and businesses supported the initiative, including Hawaii Lodging & Tourism Association, Hawaii Restaurant Association, Outrigger Hospitality Group, and Waikiki Business Improvement District Association.

Participants should bring their photo ID and insurance card if they have one, but insurance is not required to receive a vaccine. For more information, call the Queen’s Covid-19 vaccination line at 808-691-2222.
