FOR RESIDENTS 75 AND OLDER
FOR RESIDENTS AGE 65 to 74
If you are 75 years of age or older and have already contacted the Town, please DO NOT register here. You will be contacted when vaccine is available. You will be required to present proof of identity and age at the time of vaccination. By registering through this online form, you are providing the Town with your information that will be used to contact you IF a vaccine dosage is available for you at the municipal clinic.
The State of RI is currently supplying each City/Town with an extremely limited number of doses each week and the Town has no control over this process. It may take several weeks or more before you are contacted to schedule your vaccination. The State may also change this procedure in the future so please check our web site Covid-19 page regularly.
Please note that there are several other locations throughout the state where a vaccine may be available to you, including:
CVS - click here
Walgreens - click here
South County Hospital - click here
State vaccine centers in Cranston and Providence - click here
We encourage all South Kingstown residents to search for a vaccination appointment at multiple sites because there is no way to know where a vaccine will become available first. Thank you and stay healthy!

TOWN CONFIRMING CONTACT INFORMATION FOR RESIDENTS 75 AND OLDER
Town staff is currently in the process of confirming telephone contact information for residents 75 and older. If you have already called and updated information, you do not need to call again.
Any resident in this age category, who has not already confirmed a contact phone number with the Town, can call the senior Center at 401-789-0268. Staff will be answering calls as quickly as possible and the public is asked for their patience. Callers may leave a voice message with their name, address, date of birth and phone number. Staff will return every call and confirm updated information. Those who leave a voice message are asked to be patient as It may take up to five days before receiving a return call.
To ensure that those over 75 are served as quickly as possible, we ask that those not in that age category not leave their information at this time.
For all other age categories under 75, as of Feb. 8th, there is no specific guidance from the RI Department of Health on what the protocol will be for scheduling appointments.

COVID-19 Vaccine Information for Resdients 75 and Older
The Town of South Kingstown has been advised by the Rhode Island Department of Health that it will be receiving 150 doses of the Covid-19 vaccine, to be provided to senior residents, age 75 and older, on January 31st and February 3rd, at the Regional South Road School distribution site. Under the guidance of the Department of Health, the Town will be using the Rhode Island Special Needs Emergency Registry database to schedule appointments. Residents on the registry will be contacted via telephone between January 28th and February 2nd to schedule an appointment. Once all residents on the Special Needs Emergency Registry have been immunized, the Town will identify residents over the age of 75, using databases including voter registration, senior housing and senior center membership.
As the Town receives additional doses in the coming weeks, residents 75 and older will be contacted, via telephone, to schedule an appointment. This is a fluid situation and the Town asks for the public’s patience. For more information on the State's Covid-19 vaccine roll-out please visit https://covid.ri.gov/vaccination.

What is the RI Special Needs Emergency Registry?
The RIDOH has provided the following information:
The Rhode Island Special Needs Emergency Registry is a statewide registry designed to improve the identification of individuals who may need additional assistance during a disaster or emergency. The information is stored confidentially and is securely shared with municipal first responders and emergency management officials so they can best plan for and respond to an emergency. While enrolling in the registry does not guarantee assistance, it assists first responders in their response and helps keep individuals on their radar. This registration will not guarantee vaccination prioritization or that you will be contacted any sooner to receive a vaccination within the coming weeks.
Note: For South Kingstown seniors over 75, anyone who was not on the RI Special Needs Emergency registry prior to January 27th, is not guaranteed prioritization for vaccination.
