    Pharmacist Nicole Paiva readied syringes with the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine aboard Hawaii Pacific Health’s vaccination bus, May 22, at Punahou School in Makiki. The Hawaii Pacific Health’s COVID-19 Vax Squad is heading to Honolulu Zoo and the Aloha Stadium this Saturday to administer free vaccinations.

The Hawaii Pacific Health’s COVID-19 Vax Squad is heading to Honolulu Zoo and the Aloha Stadium this Saturday to administer free vaccinations.

The Vax Squad bus will be parked at Honolulu Zoo’s Gate 6 on Monsarrat Avenue, with appointments for COVID-19 vaccines available from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Individuals with confirmed appointments will receive free admission to the zoo.

From noon to 2 p.m., iHeart Radio will also be playing music and offering prize giveaways at the zoo, including gift cards from Zippy’s and Pieology, swag from the Honolulu Fire Department, and complimentary memberships to F45 Training.

The Vax Squad will also be at the Aloha Stadium Swap Meet in Aiea from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. this Saturday. The bus will be parked at the main entrance in front of the ticket booths.

“The HPH COVID-19 Vax Squad bus stops at schools across Oahu have been a popular option for the community to get their vaccine, and we’re excited to expand our mobile vaccine clinics to other locations around the island,” said Carl Hinson, HPH lead coordinator for mobile vaccine clinics, in a news release. “The clinics at the Honolulu Zoo and the Aloha Stadium Swap Meet are convenient ways for people to get their free vaccinations while also enjoying these fun activities for many island families.”

Vaccinations at both locations are available to individuals ages 12 and up.

Those participating should wear a mask, bring a picture I.D., medical insurance card, printed and completed questionnaire and their appointment confirmation. Minors ages 12 to 17 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Appointments can be scheduled online at HawaiiPacificHealth.org/COVIDVaxSquad.

Walk-ins are welcome at both locations, but appointments are required for free admission to Honolulu Zoo.
