Moderna Stock – Healthcare providers hope added supply from J&J will improve vaccine equity – Honolulu, Hawaii news, sports & weather
“One of the ways they have latitude is we want to make sure that not a single dose of the vaccine is wasted,” Raethel said. “If a vaccination center finds out, halfway through the day, or at the end of the day that they don’t have enough people coming in to fill their slots, they might have a waitlist, which could perhaps get someone in the next group, for example, it could be someone in the 70 to 74 year old age group. And so rather than let that slot go unfilled, that vaccination center has the ability or the latitude to reach out to ensure that they’re using every single dose of the vaccine they’ve prepared for that day. And they’re filling every single slot that they have that day.”
The system may not be perfect — but with more doses coming from Pfizer and Moderna and 10,000 expected from Johnson & Johnson alone — the state hopes to vaccinate everyone who wants one.
