Some R.I. municipalities to set up COVID-19 vaccine registries

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) – You may be able to sign up to eventually get vaccinated for COVID-19 starting this week in some towns and cities in Rhode Island.

According to Rep. Karen Alzate, Pawtucket for example is trying to get a registry online in the next several days.

Any residents would be able to sign up and then would be contacted to make an appointment to get vaccinated once they’re allowed to get vaccinated under Rhode Island state guidelines.

Right now first responders, health care workers, and people 75 years of age and older are among Rhode Islanders who are able to get vaccinated.

“As soon as we get the vaccines, is as soon as we’re going to try and distribute them to however, you know, the guidelines suggest,” Rep. Alzate said.
