COVID-19 Vaccine Information

We strongly recommend all our patients be vaccinated against COVID 19. All the vaccines are very effective in protecting you, your family and your community. They are also extremely safe, especially in comparison to going without vaccine as highly contagious variant viruses spread. The vaccinations are readily available at pharmacies and other sites and many do not even require an appointment. For a listing of who is offering COVID-19 Vaccines near you please visit the R.I. Department of Health. We anticipate receiving some vaccine for our largest site in East Providence. If you need a vaccine and have not been able to get it (for example you are homebound), contact your doctor’s office. If you are not sure if you should get a vaccine talk to your doctor, we want to answer your questions.
