Vaccine has finally arrived in Barrington in the month of February. The town is holding a series of 4 vaccine clinics to inoculate our eldest residents from eldest to youngest. We began with a resident who is 101 and are working our way down. The Town has been promised 110 doses per week for the 4 weeks beginning Wednesday, February 17th. Those 4 weeks will be followed by a second 4 weeks in which the participants who have been vaccinated at the Peck Center for Adult Enrichment will receive their second dose.
To be clear, with the limited number of vaccine doses being supplied to Barrington by the State of RI it is anticipated that we will come close to vaccinating the 75+ age group but we may not be able to reach all 75+ age residents. Due to the limited supply residents are encouraged to seek vaccination at any site available. Some sites you can try are:
Dunkin’ Donuts Center in Providence - https://www.vaccinateri.org
Sockanosset Cross Road in Cranston - https://www.vaccinateri.org
For those who cannot register online - call the automated line at 1-844-930-1779
CVS - go to website - CVS.com or call 800-746-7287
Walgreens - Walgreens.com/ScheduleVaccine or call your local Walgreens
We will keep you on the Barrington Registry list as we move down the list in numerical age order. If you receive your first vaccine elsewhere, please let us know so we can take you off the Barrington Registry. You can call us at 401-247-1926.
If you are 75+ and have not yet signed up for a vaccine and wish to do so,, you can do that at www.barringtonlearningctr.org or call 247-1926 Ext.201.
We had hoped to share with you pictures of our first vaccine clinic. We are not able to do that, so we have included pictures of the signage you can expect to see at various vaccine sites.
We will keep you updated as more information becomes available.
