Still trying to get an appointment for a COVID-19 vaccine?
Kaiser Permanente and Hawaii Pacific Health, among others, are taking appointments, while Walmart is expected to begin taking appointments next week.
Kaiser still has COVID-19 vaccination appointments available today through Saturday at the Kapolei Consolidated Theatre location.
On Wednesday, Kaiser announced it had close to 2,000 vaccination appointments available today through Saturday. Those interested do not have to be Kaiser Permanente members to get the vaccine.
”We continue to work on steadily ramping up appointment availability,” said Kaiser in a news release. “We are prioritizing those 50 years of age and older now in advance of the opening to Phase 2 on Monday.”
This Monday, Oahu will open vaccine eligibility to all residents ages 16 and up to comply with a presidential mandate, and appointments for this category are also available for next week.
Walmart said it will begin offering Moderna vaccines at its Walmart pharmacies, along with some Sam’s Club pharmacies, starting next week.
Appointments will open up as vaccines are allocated, according to a Walmart spokeswoman, on a seven-day rolling basis. New appointments will also be added each day.
Among locations where the vaccine will be offered are Walmart stores in Honolulu, Waipahu, Pearl City and Kapolei on Oahu; Lihue on Kauai; Kahului on Maui; and Hilo and Kona on Hawaii island. Sam’s Clubs in Honolulu and Pearl City are listed, as well.

Hawaii Pacific Health, meanwhile, announced today that 6,700 appointments for the Pfizer vaccine are available at Pier 2 for next week.
Oahu residents ages 16 and up can schedule an appointment for the Pier 2 location at HawaiiPacificHealth.org/COVID19Vaccine.
Minors 16 or 17 years old must be accompanied to their appointment by a parent or guardian, Hawaii Pacific Health said.
Kaiser, which operates several vaccination sites across Hawaii, partnered with Consolidated Theatres last month to open a mass vaccination site at 890 Kamokila Blvd.
So far, Kaiser said it has administered more than 84,000 doses of vaccine. As of today, Hawaii reached a milestone in its administration of COVID-19 vaccines in the state — more than 1 million doses administered through state and federal programs.
Kaiser says the best way to schedule an appointment is online because its call center volume is high, and may result in longer than usual wait times.
Kaiser asks that those who already have an appointment later in the month cancel it first before booking another one.
