Aloha HCA Members,
Per the Hawaii State Department of Health, agricultural producers (farmers and ranchers) are frontline essential workers. If you are an agricultural producer, you will be eligible to receive a vaccine in Phase 1B as part of the Department of Health's Vaccine Distribution Plan.
Please note that due to the limited supply of vaccines, the Department of Health is prioritizing vaccinating kupuna (individuals aged 75 and older) that sign-up. As the state receives more vaccines, the Department of Health will offer more opportunities for other individuals to receive the vaccine.
For the most up-to-date information, please visit the state's Department of Health's COVID-19 Vaccine Page.
For more information please read this message from the Hawaii Farm Bureau, or check the County of Hawaii vaccine page.
Mahalo and stay well,
Christopher A. Manfredi
