City of Providence, Asthenis Pharmacy announce vaccine clinic


PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) – Mayor Elorza and Asthenis Pharmacy Founder Dr. Eugenio Fernandez announced the creation of a city-scale vaccine clinic for people eighteen and up. The clinic is scheduled to open December 30.

Over 1000 appointments are open, available on a first-come first-serve basis, serving Moderna COVID-19 vaccines, including boosters.

“As we are seeing cases rise and continued strain on our healthcare and hospital systems, we all have to do our part to keep one another safe,” said Mayor Jorge O. Elorza. “Our team has hosted four clinics over the past three months, and we will continue to work with our partners like Asthenis Pharmacy who are doing tremendous work to enroll and vaccinate our residents. If you or a loved one still need your vaccine or booster shot, I encourage you to sign up for an appointment today.”

All people can register for Vaccines and Boosters here. In order to apply for a booster you must have waited six months between this Moderna booster, and your initial Moderna or Pfizer shots, or waited two months with a Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
