Imua Family Services to host youth Vaccine Drive at Imua Discovery Garden

The outdoor vaccine clinic aimed at youth 12 and older will be administered by Minit Medical at Imua’s newly acquired Wailuku property.

Imua Family Services and Minit Medical will be holding a Vaccine Clinic for children 12 years and up to receive the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine on the lower lawn at Imua Discovery Garden on Thursday, May 20, 2021 (with the second follow up shot on June 10). “The historic property in Wailuku is a peaceful and tranquil location for young people to receive the vaccine and be able to relax in the warm sunny breeze while they wait,” says Dean Wong, Imua Family Services Executive Director.

Appointments can be scheduled by scanning the QR Code below or visiting www.solvhealth.com/book-online/AGn110. Please be sure to bring the information listed. Parking will be accommodated at the grass lot at 2307 W. Main St. in Wailuku. Volunteers will be on-hand to direct guests to the vaccine clinic location at Imua Discovery Garden.

As vaccines for our younger population help strengthen our defenses against COVID-19, we realize that it will be some time before we as a society recover from the impact that the fear, stress and anxiety has had on the mental health and well-being of our young people. We hope that the summer starts to bring light back into our lives and that our youth are able to regain at least some of the social-emotional and peer support that was lacking this past year.

On May 10, 2021 the U.S. Food and Drug Administration expanded the emergency use authorization (EUA) for the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine for the prevention of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) to include adolescents 12 through 15 years of age. The FDA amended the EUA originally issued on Dec. 11, 2020 for administration in individuals 16 years of age and older.
