Individuals are encouraged to make every effort to attend COVID-19 vaccination opportunities outside the home safely. Individuals who are Medicaid members or over the age of 60 may request transportation to a vaccination opportunity through MTM, online at https://www.mtm-inc.net/mtm-link/ or by phone 1-855-330-9131 (TTY: 711), at least 48 hours before the vaccination appointment.

Booster doses of Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine are available to eligible Rhode Islanders as of Friday, September 24. This follows CDC’s recommendation to make booster doses of Pfizer vaccine available to certain people.  For more information on eligibility, please see https://covid.ri.gov/boosterdoses.

People who are eligible should get their booster doses at least six months after their second dose of Pfizer.  

We encourage everyone to make an appointment to get vaccinated when possible. This will help Rhode Island be able to administer vaccines quickly and efficiently. You can find appointments at any of the options listed at C19VaccineRI.org.
