For children and teens
For children and teens, the MMR vaccine is recommended for children between 13 and 18 years old or adolescents/adults if they’re 17 years old but still in high school.
Some healthcare providers may recommend that parents discuss the pros and cons of vaccines with their children before scheduling their vaccinations.
Kids over six weeks of age should have an infant’s MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella) vaccine before visiting a doctor or going to school.

If you have a child between 13 and 18 years old, there are two ways to get their shots: by going to your doctor’s office or scheduling an appointment online through the Department of Health. If you want to schedule a covid vaccination yourself, here’s what you need:
Teens will also need to provide proof of domicile in Hawaii. If you don’t offer that when you’re asked for proof of residence, you can get an IEP instead, proof of home.
You’ll also need to provide proof of domicile in Hawaii. If you don’t offer that when you’re asked for proof of residence, you can get an IEP instead, evidence of habitation.
The most common way to prove your domicile is by filing Form A-1401 with the county clerk’s office and having it notarized by a licensed public notary (physician). In addition, many banks require written letters from parents or guardians confirming that they are legal guardians AND listing their residential addresses as well as current mailing addresses (for example: “Dear Sir/Madam: We at this moment confirm our consent for my child [child’s name] and his/her family members living at [address], Hawaii 96735.”).
The downside of this method is that it requires several days before filing paperwork and waiting for results from the court clerk’s office; if there isn’t enough time before school starts again after summer vacation ends (or if the school doesn’t create again until after summer vacation ends), then this option won’t work well either!
You will also need medical records from the doctor from whom you got the first MMR. These are known as “consent forms.”
You will also need medical records from the doctor from whom you got the first MMR. These are known as “consent forms.” If you don’t have one, call your doctor and ask for one before you can schedule the second vaccine in Hawaii.
If you have a consent form, bring it with you when scheduling your covid vaccine in Hawaii; otherwise, fill out this form at https://www.hawaiihealthinfo.org/vaccines/covid_vaccine_information_form.
Check the CDC website on the vaccine schedule to ensure you’re up-to-date.
To find the entire vaccination schedule for your state, visit the Center for Disease Control’s website. You can also look up individual cities and counties to see what vaccines are required in that area.
The CDC lists vaccines by age group and co-infection with specific diseases (such as influenza), so check all options before deciding on one vaccine or another!
To track when your child needs their next dose of vaccinations, use a calendar app like Google Calendar or Microsoft Outlook on your phone (or an online calendar service). This will help you remember when it’s time for each shot—and make sure no one misses out!
People are talking about the possible change to the state’s vaccination requirements
Hawaii could require vaccinations for ‘contagious diseases’ – legislative watchdog group
“The new law would expand existing public health statutes, enacting a requirement that all students, public and private school employees receive immunizations for communicable diseases,” according to a report from Civil Beat. “The bill also authorizes a physician or certified nurse practitioner to administer immunizations without patient consent.” The legislature must approve this measure before it can be signed into law by Gov. David Ige (D). If it receives approval, Hawaii will join 23 other states that have passed laws requiring adult vaccination to attend public school or work in specific industries.
