COVID-19 Vaccine Information

Good news! Rhode Island is among the first states in the country to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. The first doses are being administered to ICU and Emergency Department staff at our hospitals. Brown Medicine is in the process of developing its vaccination plan for patients and staff, based on details yet to come from state health officials. Once we have this information, we look forward to sharing it with you. In the meantime, please refrain from calling our office to inquire about the vaccine, so that all other calls (emergency, doctor consults, appointments, lab results, etc.) can be addressed by staff in a timely manner. For additional comprehensive and up-to-date information on COVID-19 vaccines, visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the R.I. Department of Health.

Brown Medicine is one of the approved clinical trial sites worldwide in the race for a COVID-19 cure. Dr. Karen Tashima discusses the trial's expectations, outcomes, and what participates need to know.
