Each year, UH Hilo provides assistance to students who are faced with some type of a personal emergency, but never before have we been hit by a crisis like COVID-19.
On Hawai‘i Island, 48 UH Hilo student pharmacists have been helping at vaccination sites in Hilo. Students also have been assisting on O‘ahu at vaccination events held at Leeward Community College and UH Mānoa.
Students helped at Hawai‘i Department of Health-coordinated vaccination sites over winter break, and many continue to volunteer during spring rotation blocks this semester.
Keep up the good work protecting yourself and our UH Hilo ‘ohana from Covid-19. Here is some info about safety and services on campus this semester.
