PROVIDENCE — Rhode Island on Monday started allowing residents age 65 and older to schedule appointments for a COVID-19 vaccination.
The state in a statement said it expects to schedule about 10,000 appointments Monday for vaccinations at two state-run vaccination sites at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center in Providence and the former Citizens bank headquarters on Sockanosset Cross Road in Cranston.
But the agency also said because of limited supplies, not everyone who wants to make an appointment will be able to right away.
Vaccinations are also available at some CVS and Walgreens pharmacy locations and at local clinics.
About 9,900 people were vaccinated at the two state-run sites over their first three days of operation, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, according to the health department.
