The following update was posted by Block Island Health Services on Monday, Feb. 8:

Block Island Health Services will be receiving 50 doses of Covid-19 vaccine despite our strong advocacy for more. Block Island Health Services will likely be taking receipt of the vaccine over the next ten days and administering it to the eldest members of the Block Island community. BIHS will utilize our social media sites and the Block Island Bulletin Board to communicate further information as it is made available to us.

Los Servicios de Salud de Block Island recibirán 50 dosis de vacuna a pesar de nuestra firme defensa de más. Es probable que Block Island Health Services reciba la vacuna durante los próximos diez días y se la administre a los miembros mayores de la comunidad de Block Island. Los Servicios de Salud de Block Island utilizará nuestros sitios de redes sociales y el Block Island Bulletin Board para comunicar más información a medida que esté disponible para nosotros.

Block Island Health Services will continue to vaccinate the community, as we receive our Covid-19 vaccine allotment from the Rhode Island Department of Health.

However, the state will open mass vaccination sites in Rhode Island for people 75 and older. The first site will open in Cranston next week and at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center in Providence the following week. Appointments will not be available until their website opens. If interested, keep checking their site for availability.

Meanwhile, Dr. Warcup and others are advocating for a larger allocation for Block Island.

Block Island Health Services continuará vacunando a la comunidad, ya que recibimos nuestra asignación de vacunas Covid del Departamento de Salud de Rhode Island.

Sin embargo, el estado abrirá sitios de vacunación masiva en Rhode Island para personas mayores de 75 años. El primer sitio se abrirá en Cranston la próxima semana y en el Dunkin’ Donuts Center en Providence la semana siguiente. Las citas no estarán disponibles hasta que se abra su website. Si está interesado, siga consultando su sitio para ver la disponibilidad.
