VACCINE UPDATE - FEBRUARY 5, 2021
We've successfully provided the 130 doses allocated to us from the Department of Health to those eligible residents ages 75 and over. Thank you to everyone who assisted in this process.

North Kingstown has been advised by the State Department of Health that we will be provided with 720 doses over the next 8 weeks. These doses will continue to be administered at our Regional POD at South Road Elementary School, 1157 South Road, South Kingstown, RI. If you have registered on our website, our Senior Center staff will be contacting you for an appointment as the vaccines become available.

It will take some time for everyone who wants a vaccine to schedule appointments and get vaccinated. The 720 doses provided to us by the Department of Health is approximately 25% of our town’s 75+ population. Please be patient. You will have an opportunity to receive a vaccine. The three main ways people will be able to get vaccinated are in their city or town, at pharmacies, or at a State-run vaccination site.

This weekend (2/6 & 2/7), some CVS and Walgreens stores will begin registering people who are ages 75 and older for vaccinations. You must have an appointment to get vaccinated at these locations.

You can book CVS appointments starting as early as February 6, 2021. Visit www.cvs.com , use the CVS Pharmacy app, or call 1-800-746-7287 to schedule an appointment.

The Town of North Kingstown has made all its appointments for the limited 130 doses of vaccines the State Department of Health has provided us. Regretfully this limited dose is not close to the almost 3,000 75+ residents we have here in North Kingstown.

We are hoping and expecting additional doses soon. We await further information and instructions from the R.I. Department of Health relative to this additional supply. In the meantime, please sign up for a future vaccination by clicking on the link below “COVID-19 Application Form”. Please call the Senior Center at 268-1590 if you need assistance applying.

As the Town receives doses of the vaccine, residents 75 and older will be contacted, via telephone, to schedule an appointment. Upon scheduling your appointment, we will provide instructions including the location for the vaccination. This is a fluid situation, and the Town asks for the public’s patience. We are committed to ensuring our entire population is vaccinated and await requirements and information from the Department of Health and Federal Officials.
