URI Health Services will offer COVID-19 vaccination/booster clinics April 20, 22

With just a few weeks to go until the end of the semester, the University would like to thank our faculty, staff and students who have worked together to help safeguard the health and well-being of our community. In these last several weeks, we remind all members of our community to practice good respiratory and hand hygiene. And, please remember that if you have COVID-19 symptoms you should stay home from work or school and obtain a test the same day.

In order to continue these efforts, URI Health Services will run two additional COVID-19 vaccine and booster shot clinics on April 20, from 9 to 11 a.m., and April 22, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., in the Memorial Union Ballroom. Vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna will be available at each clinic.

Registration is required for the vaccine/booster clinics. Please click on the links below to schedule your vaccine series or booster. If you have a COVID-19 vaccination card, please bring it to the clinic. You must remain at the vaccination clinic site for 15 minutes following your vaccination/booster for observation. Please be sure to upload your COVID-19 vaccinations in the URI Health Services portal under the immunization tab.

Under the guidance of the CDC, eligible individuals should remain up-to-date with boosters. The latest information on up-to-date vaccination recommendations by manufacturer, including those eligible for a second booster, is available here.

URI Health Services will continue to offer COVID-19 testing for faculty, staff and students until the end of the semester at the Health Services trailer in the parking lot across from the Potter Building. Testing will transition to rapid home antigen tests being distributed for both symptomatic and asymptomatic testing; however, symptomatic faculty, staff and students will also receive a PCR test. Updated testing hours are available here.

We wish all our students, faculty, and staff a successful and healthy end to the semester.
