Vaccination Clinic – Chariho Regional Middle School on Monday, August 16, 3-5 PM

Dear Chariho Families, Teachers, Staff, and Community,

We have confirmed that we will be hosting another state-run vaccination clinic at Chariho Regional Middle School on Monday, August 16, 2021, from 3-5 pm. The clinic will be open to anyone ages 12 and older. Please note individuals must be 12 on or before August 16th to get vaccinated. The clinic will have the Pfizer vaccine.

Our current vaccination rate for students eligible to be vaccinated is forty-five percent. COVID-19 vaccines help protect against the Delta variant of COVID-19, which spreads more easily and quickly than other variants. To have the safest return to school possible, the state is asking everyone who is eligible to be fully vaccinated.

As a reminder, students who are vaccinated and who are asymptomatic will not need to quarantine if they become a close contact per RIDOH guidance.

Per the state, the registration window for this clinic will close on August 15, 2021.
