Last weekend Foster was able to vaccinate 28 residents at the Smithfield High School vaccination site. At this time we do not know when we will be getting more vaccines.
If you have already contacted the Dept. of Human Services to put your name on the notification list, you do not need to do anything else at this time. When we receive the vaccines and have the logistics set up for the next clinic, we will be in contact with you. Volunteers will call you to get you registered for an appointment and you will be given the specifics on when and where at that time. We are working on vaccinating the 75+ age group first before we move onto the next age group.
Per the state guidelines, younger people who have complex medical conditions will be able to get vaccinated in the 60-64 age grouping.
If you have not contacted DHS yet and you are in one of these age groups (75+, 65-74 and 60-64) you can email email@example.com or leave a voicemail at 401-392-9208.
