You must have two doses of vaccine. You cannot schedule your second dose online. We will schedule your second when you receive your first dose. You will need to come back for you second in three or four weeks from your first dose (depending on which vaccine you receive). It is very important that you keep your appointments for the second dose. The vaccine is not fully effective until two weeks after your second dose.
If you have questions about the second dose, please call (401) 767-4100 and press 2.
