As of 1/21/2021
Rhode Island continues to make progress in rolling out the COVID-19 vaccine. Most healthcare providers, hospital staff and first responders throughout the state have been vaccinated. In fact, Coastal Medical clinicians and staff in our practices began getting vaccinated last week.
Coastal Medical has not yet been told when the vaccines will be available to our patients. However, we expect that the Rhode Island Department of Health will make the vaccine available to our patients 75 years of age and older first. We stand ready to immunize our patients when we are given the opportunity. Once groups are invited to be vaccinated, the process is typically very smooth and well executed.
Coastal is committed to keeping you informed with the most current news regarding the COVID-19 vaccine availability in Rhode Island and at Coastal Medical. Rest assured that we will share those updates with you as soon as we get them.
Please see below for an update on the COVID-19 vaccine from Coastal Medical's Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Ed McGookin:
