COVID-19 Vaccine Resources

This list of resources is available to assist the Brown community in scheduling vaccination appointments and better understanding how the COVID-19 vaccine works.

Effective Monday, April 19, 2021, all individuals 16 years of age and older who live, work or study in Rhode Island are eligible to get the COVID-19 vaccine at no cost and with no requirement for insurance. There are multiple ways to make an appointment to get a vaccination in Rhode Island:

  • You can make an appointment at one of the state-run vaccination sites, including the Dunkin Donuts Center in downtown Providence, at vaccinateri.org. The Dunkin Donuts Center vaccination clinic operates daily from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and free parking is available at the Rhode Island Convention Center North Garage. From College Hill, the Omni Express (weekdays) and the Omni/Chestnut Express (nights and weekends) shuttle routes offer frequent service and the Omni stop is a 3-minute walk from the entrance to the Dunkin Donuts Center. Shuttle routes and operating hours can be found on the Transportation Office website.

One of the best ways to prepare for the COVID-19 vaccine is to understand how it works, its safety and effectiveness and its possible side effects. Below is a list of resources for learning more about the vaccines.
