……….475,661 Vaccines Administered in Hawai’i, 3/15/21……….
March 16, 2021
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.
