Donor provides OnoPops for Wilcox Vaccine Clinic

LIHU‘E — “And two no sugar specials — Strawberry Banana and Mango Mango,” said Candace Boxer of OnoPops Gourmet Popsicles, Wednesday afternoon at the Wilcox Health Center.

The two “no sugar” varieties were a part of 134 OnoPops valued at more than $650 being delivered by Boxer to the Wilcox Health Vaccine Clinic.

“A frequent Kaua‘i visitor who knows vaccination will help the island reopen asked to donate OnoPops to the Wilcox Vaccination Clinic,” said Greg Askew of OnoPops Gourmet Popsicles. “We at OnoPops matched 50 percent of the 130 total OnoPops that will be distributed to the clinic during their shift change.”

Boxer said the 50 percent donor match is still being offered, just as it was before the pandemic hit.

OnoPops Kaua‘i is currently serving up the handmade locally treats drawing from local sourcing at the Old Koloa Night Market that opened several months ago on the third Saturday of each month from 3 p.m., and at the Princeville Night Market whose next hosting will be on April 11 from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Princeville Center.

As of March 30, the Wilcox Medical Center vaccination clinic has administered 10,683 of the more than 40,000 doses administered on Kaua‘i.

Kaua‘i residents should visit www.WilcoxHealth.org/Vaccine for the latest appointment availability and to schedule appointments.

Currently, individuals 60 and older, those with qualifying high-risk medical conditions, and essential workers identified by the Department of Health are eligible for vaccination. Patients will need to certify the category they qualify for at the time they make the appointment online, and may be asked to provide verification of qualified medical condition and/or employment when they arrive for their vaccination.
