(AP) — Hawaiʻi’s leaders say limited supply is the main thing constraining distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine. Hawaiʻi received 59,000 doses of the vaccine last week, but expects to get only about 32,000 this week. Still, Lt. Gov. Josh Green said the state expects to be able to vaccinate everyone in the top priority category by the end of next month. That category includes health care workers, long-term care facility residents, people over 75, and teachers and other frontline essential workers. The federal government is distributing vaccine to each state in accordance with their share of the U.S. population.
