PROVIDENCE, RI — The Rhode Island Department of Health announced severe weather has caused delays that require rescheduling community clinics set for Tuesday in Cranston, East Greenwich and West Warwick.
Severe weather has affected distribution nationwide, RIDOH said in its announcement. As a result, COVID-19 vaccination appointments scheduled for Tuesday will be rescheduled.
A shipment of approximately 12,400 doses of Moderna vaccine to Rhode Island did not arrive today. The community clinics scheduled for tomorrow at the Cranston Senior Center, the Swift Community Center (in East Greenwich), and the West Warwick Civic Center are affected by this delay and are being rescheduled. People who had appointments will be contacted directly by clinic organizers.
This shipping delay could have additional impacts on some clinics currently scheduled for Wednesday. RIDOH stated it will update the public on whether Wednesday’s vaccination clinics will need to be rescheduled on Tuesday.
