The single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine is now available at upcoming COVID-19 vaccination clinics for eligible frontline essential workers.

The appointment-only clinics will be held on March 15 and March 22, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the Kaua‘i War Memorial Convention Hall. Frontline essential workers who have received an email from the Department of Health to register for vaccine and schedule an appointment are eligible for these new dates.

Those who would like the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine, must sign up for the “J&J Clinic” on March 15 or March 22. For the two-dose Moderna vaccine, register for the “Moderna Clinic” on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, or Thursdays.

For those who’ve already received a first dose of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccines, must complete the series with the same vaccine. They are not eligible to receive a dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.


Anyone who has an upcoming appointment scheduled for a first dose of the Moderna vaccine at the Convention Hall, can cancel and switch to a Monday date offering the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

Log back into VAMS, cancel your appointment, and then reschedule. You would select a Monday “J&J Clinic” rather than a Tuesday-Thursday “Moderna Clinic.”

All three vaccines currently approved are highly effective at preventing severe illness, hospitalization, or death due to COVID-19. Learn more about the different vaccines here.


The Department of Health-run clinic at the War Memorial Convention Hall is only for frontline essential workers who are eligible for vaccine because of their employment. If you think you are eligible but have not received an email from the Department of Health, please check with your employer. If your employer is unable to provide you with information about your vaccine eligibility, you may complete the brief survey at If you don’t hear back within a week via email, you do not meet the current eligibility criteria. We will hold on to your information until you qualify.

The Convention Hall clinic is an appointment-only clinic. Do not walk up and expect to be vaccinated.

Meanwhile, Kaua‘i hospital clinics and Longs Kapa‘a continue scheduling appointments for kūpuna aged 70 and older. Links for kūpuna sign-up are available at Visitors to Kaua‘i are not eligible to receive COVID-19 vaccine. Supply is for residents only.
