Beginning today vaccination data will be reported by Race/Ethnicity daily at noon. However, data being collected is only drilled down to five buckets in accordance with the federal Vaccine Administration Management System (VAMS). Native Hawaiians & Pacific Islanders are recombined and reported accordingly.
Successful with the infection data collection and reporting, the NHPI 3R Team will continue to advocate for the disaggregation of vaccination data so we can all better serve our communities.

What is the burden of COVID-19 on
Pacific Island and Native Hawaiian communities
The Native Hawaiian & Pacific Islander Hawai’i COVID-19 Response, Recovery & Reslilience Team (NHPI 3R) was established in May 2020, in alignment with the national NHPI Response Team, to improve the collection and reporting of accurate data, identify and lend support to initiatives across the Hawaiian Islands working to address COVID-19 among Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders, and unify to establish a presence in the decision-making processes and policies that impact our communities. More than 40 agencies, organizations and departments comprise this NHPI 3R Team.
The NHPI 3R Team has recently completed a 5-part series summarizing the work of the Team to address COVID-19 and prepare for recovery. Each week we featured an in-depth look in a different topic: Vaccinations, Data, Communications, Policy and Social Supports and Recovery.
