COVID-19 Vaccine Clinics
Vaccination against COVID-19 is an important step in ensuring the safety of our CCRI community as we prepare to reopen our campuses to faculty, staff, and students beginning this summer.
The benefits of COVID-19 vaccination include prevention of serious illness, hospitalization, and death from the virus. Broad immunization is critical to help stop the current pandemic and to protect our college community, as well as being the fastest path to returning to a much more normal existence at CCRI.
