Paging Governor Raimondo . . .] Starting Monday, the state will allow Rhode Islanders 65-and-older to book appointments for vaccine shots at one of two state-run clinics including The Dunk in downtown Providence.

The state launched its central portal at Vaccinate RI yesterday, taking appointments for those 75-and-older. Starting Monday, the cut-off drops to 65 years of age.

The state has set up an automated help line at (844) 930-1779 where one can leave a message and get a call back for assistance.
