SALT at Our Kaka‘ako will serve as a convenient location for Oʻahu residents to get vaccinated against COVID-19 on Saturday, May 29, 2021. As part of the State Department of Health’s program designed to increase Hawai‘i’s vaccination numbers throughout June, the walk-up clinic at SALT is part of the kick-off for the upcoming #HiGotVaccinated Month. The vaccination clinic at SALT, which will be operated by Queen’s Health Systems, will be open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at The Barn. 

The vaccination opportunity is open to residents 12 years and older. The single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine will be provided to those over 18 years of age. Those 12 to 18 years old will receive the Pfizer vaccine. Minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. The shot will be free of charge, but participants should bring their health insurance card and a photo I.D. card. 
“Caring for our keiki, kūpuna, and the health and safety of our communities is a kākou effort,” said Gary Evora, Kamehameha Schools commercial real estate senior asset manager. “We welcome this opportunity to collaborate with these great organizations to offer a vaccination site in this innovative community at Our Kakaʻako.”

Walk-ups are welcome and advance registration is encouraged and available online. A COVID-19 Vaccine Pre-Screening Form must be completed prior to receiving the vaccine. The form can be downloaded and printed out and completed in advance or completed on site.

“SALT at Our Kaka‘ako is pleased to help launch this important program as Hawai‘i presses towards its vaccination goals,” said SALT General Manager Dixie Diga. “SALT is centrally located in urban Honolulu, making this clinic location especially accessible to thousands of residents who call Our Kaka‘ako and its neighboring communities home. Many will be able to wake up on Saturday morning and walk over — or make a quick drive over — to receive their vaccination. Then, they can enjoy some lunch and do some shopping.”

Those who get vaccinated at SALT will be able to take advantage of special incentives from participating merchants. Follow the center’s social media @SaltOurKakaako, prior to the event for updates.

The mission of #HIGotVaccinated Month is to help Hawai‘i reach population immunity and recover from this pandemic so our communities can return back to normalcy. In June, it will focus on outreach to young people (ages 12 to 34), among others. 

The SALT at Our Kaka‘ako vaccination clinic is a partnership of the State Department of Health, Queen’s Health Systems, the Honolulu Fire Department, Kamehameha Schools and other participating government, business and non-profit organizations. See the Department of Health’s COVID-19 portal for more information at hawaiicovid19.com.

After receiving their vaccine, community members are encouraged to visit SALT’s wide array of stores, restaurants and businesses. Known for its diverse lineup of quality eateries, there is something for everyone, whether takeout or dine-in. With graduations and Father’s Day upon us, guests can also get their shopping done at SALT at Our Kaka‘ako. 

While there, it would be a great time to also discover SALT’s amazing collection of outdoor art for a chance to win in the Art on the Block scavenger hunt. It’s a fun and educational contest that runs through June, offering a chance to win a $100 gift card of the winner’s choice from among the participating SALT merchants. There will be two winners announced monthly. Please follow @SaltOurKakaako on social media for complete details, updates and scavenger hunt questions.
