Our members and Rhode Islanders 50+ welcome the shift in the state’s vaccination plan that now prioritizes, largely by age, those most vulnerable to hospitalization and death. This revision is encouraging and one that – if implemented with efficiency and full transparency – answers many questions surrounding the state’s effort to distribute vaccine.

What's the next step?

We must have an inclusive and accessible system in place for all Rhode Islanders. It should include a Web site and a statewide centralized phone number staffed with live support, to assist all Rhode Island in accessing timely information that guarantees an orderly and expeditious means of getting vaccinated.

Let's get this done! Click here to send an email to your state representatives and tell them we have to make the vaccination play work for EVERYONE. We have to get the right!

Take Action Now. Raise your voice. We've proved it works.
