(Update Feb. 20) Town Announces Availability of 250 Additional Vaccine Doses for Residents 75 & Over

The Town has secured 250 additional vaccine doses for residents over 75.  Residents in this age category who have not yet scheduled an appointment can self-schedule through this link http://bit.ly/3s7nMeY:  Residents who have already been contacted by the Senior center and have an appointment scheduled, there is no need to re-register.  Your appointment time and date have not changed. 

The Senior Center will continue to do telephone outreach and scheduling of appointments, to residents 75 and older who do not have access to online scheduling.  Anyone in this age category who has not contacted the Senior Center to confirm their phone number should call the Center at 401-789-0268.

  • Important Notice about availability of Vaccine:

    The State of RI is currently supplying each City/Town with a limited number of doses each week and the Town has no control over this process. It may take several weeks or more before you are contacted to schedule your vaccination. The State may also change this procedure in the future so please check our web site Covid-19 page regularly.

  • Please note that there are several other locations throughout the state where a vaccine may be available to you, including:

    CVS - click here
    Walgreens - click here
    South County Hospital - click here
    State vaccine centers in Cranston and Providence - click here or call 844-930-1779. 

We encourage all South Kingstown residents to search for a vaccination appointment at multiple sites because there is no way to know where a vaccine will become available first. Thank you and stay healthy!  

Please refer to information and updates being provided by the Rhode Island Department of Health on the RIDOH COVID-19 Vaccine webpage. Additional information and resources can be found on the Town's COVID-19 webpage.
