VAPIHCS Veterans,

 VAPIHCS will resume offering the Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) COVID-19 vaccine to individuals 18 years and older, in accordance with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) guidance, following a 10-day pause recommended by the CDC and FDA after a very small number of people who received the vaccine experienced rare but serious blood clots.

 After careful review and evaluation, the FDA and CDC have confidence that this vaccine is safe for use and effective in preventing COVID-19. The available data show that the vaccine’s benefits outweigh its risks and the chance of blood clots occurring following its administration is very low. Anyone who is offered the J&J vaccine from VA will receive information about the potential risks and benefits of the vaccine, including the rare risk of blood clots and will be made aware of alternative vaccine options.

 The primary goal of COVID-19 vaccination is to protect those we serve from COVID-19, and VA’s priority remains the safety of all those receiving vaccine from VA, including Veterans, their spouses, caregivers, employees and federal partners.

 One and Done” with only one required dose, the Johnson &  Johnson Covid-19 vaccine is providing our Veterans, spouses, and caregivers an option to receive their vaccinations and be “One and Done”.

VAPIHCS has more than 3,000 Johnson and Johnson vaccines that must be administered by June 23rd.

Call to secure an appointment: 1-800-214-1306

 We have both face-to-face or telehealth appointments and you can still utilize our drive-thru pharmacy service (on Oahu) from 8 a.m.- 4 p.m.

 One Team, One Ohana!

VAPIHCS Veterans,  

 This past Tuesday, the CDC and FDA’s decided to pause use of the J&J/Janssen vaccine after receiving reports of blood clotting in six people out of the over 6,800,000 people in the United States who have received the J&J vaccine. Per the national guidelines, VA is pausing the use of the J&J vaccine as the CDC and FDA continue their review. VA has not seen these serious side effects in the more than 100,000 people we have vaccinated with the J&J product at VA and the J&J vaccine has not been removed from the market.

 While it is highly unlikely that you will experience any serious adverse reactions outside of the common flu-like symptoms seen in the first day or two after vaccination, we are reaching out to ensure you are informed. The six people that had a blood clot were women under the age of 48 and experienced this adverse event within two weeks of receiving the J&J COVID-19 vaccine As such, VA is calling all women 55 years and younger that received the J&J vaccine to check on their health and wellbeing. We are also conducting this wellness check on everyone who received the J&J vaccine by US mail.

 People who received their vaccine at least 3 weeks ago have a low risk of developing a blood clot. The general symptoms from a blood clot include severe headaches, blurred vision, fainting, seizures, pain in your abdomen (chest or stomach), leg pain or swelling, or shortness of breath. We are asking Veterans to contact us if they had any of these symptoms within the last 3 weeks and to seek emergency care or dial 9-1-1 if symptoms are severe.

 Your health and safety are our number one priority. We are here to answer any questions and to assist you as needed. Please contact your primary care team at 1-800-214-1306 dial 0.

 We will continue to update the VA vaccine website with what we learn about the J&J vaccine. https://www.va.gov/health-care/covid-19-vaccine/

The west Maui Veterans club is in the process of obtaining from 25 to 35 acres of land to be used as a Memorial Park for Veterans. It is possible that we may be able to split the land and have a civilian version to complement the overall internment needs of West Maui Veterans.
The Maui Planning department has certified the land as Quasi/public and suitable for this use. There are no Memorial Parks on the West side currently
The location is above the Honokowai waste water treatment plant and runs alongside the proposed bypass. Note that the Proposed West Maui Hospital is to be nearby. Please look at the attached map for . for Clarification.
Thank You,
Paul Laub, Memorial Park Project manager.
