For questions, you can call 401-222-8022.

You can book CVS appointments on the CVS app or online https://www.cvs.com/immunizations/covid-19-vaccine?icid=cvs-home-hero1-banner-1-coronavirus-vaccine or call 1-800-746-7287 to schedule an appointment.

You can book Walgreens appointments on the Walgreens app or online https://www.walgreens.com/findcare/vaccination/covid-19?ban=covid_vaccine_landing_schedule

The Providence VA Medical Center has begun vaccinating people who are enrolled in the VA Health Care. VA Providence is actively contacting patients at high risk of severe illness from COVID-19 to schedule their vaccination appointments. There is no need for Veterans to preregister, call for an appointment or come to a facility to sign up. https://www.va.gov/health-care/covid-19-vaccine/ If you are not yet enrolled in VA Healthcare you can do so by visiting https://www.va.gov/health-care/how-to-apply/ online or by contacting the Eligibility Office at the Providence VA Medical Center Main Building, Main Entrance, Rooms D1089A and 1089E or call 401-273-7100 Ext. 12496 401-273-7100 Ext. 13250

Below are the links to every city and town’s COVID-19 vaccination information.

Right now, each community has their own process for administering the vaccine. Some communities are using the RI Special Needs Registry, others are using the CODE RED registries and still others are collecting contact information to create their own lists. These lists are being used to schedule appointments when vaccine becomes available.

It is EXTREMELY important that you carefully read what your city or town has posted.


The vaccine is free. Appointments are free. No one should ask you for money. No one will ask for your social security number. Your immigration status does NOT matter.

Some additional notes to keep in mind:

Be patient

People over the age of 75 have been prioritized to get the vaccine. There isn’t enough vaccine for everyone right now but more is coming soon. I have included the number of people over the age of 65 in every city and town according to the Healthy Aging Data Report (https://healthyagingdatareports.org/healthy-aging-indicators/) to give an idea of how many older adults are in your community. In many communities, you will NOT be able to register right now if you are not over 75.

Be kind

The people who need help are your neighbors. Many communities are asking for online registration. Since you are reading this online you have the ability to help your elderly neighbor get registered. If you do need help to get registered, being rude to the person who answers the phone or who is trying to help you doesn’t make a vaccine magically appear, it just gives the helper a bad day. Don’t make people have a bad day.

Be honest

If you are not in the currently authorized vaccination group then don’t pretend that you are. You can check what group is currently authorized here https://covid.ri.gov/vaccination

The cities and towns have vaccines for their residents only. You will most likely be asked to prove that you live in the city or town that you registered in. A government issued id (state ID or drivers license) or utility bill with your name may be requested as proof.

Don’t be a no-show.

If you do sign up at multiple places-for example CVS, Walgreens and your town, and get your vaccine PLEASE CANCEL your other registrations. Don’t prevent other people from getting a shot because you have multiple registrations.

    Hey, Deb. Thanks for this info, it’s great! So complete and not found anywhere else like this. I was wondering where you got the data on the numbers of older adults in each community, that is fascinating info.

    Take care!
