Hawai´i Hits COVID-19 Vaccine Benchmark
* Updated May 27, 4:22 PM
The Hawai´i Department of Health announced that more than half the state’s population has been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, as of Thursday, May 27.
Approximately 816,000 residents of Hawai´i have received at least one does of a coronavirus vaccine. That is roughly 58% of the state’s total population.
To date, more than 1.5 million doses have been administered across all islands.
The increase in vaccinations across Hawai´i has resulted in Gov. David Ige rolling back mask mandates for residents and visitors outdoors, whether they have been vaccinated or not.
