The Providence Community Library (PCL) is stepping up big time. Imagine navigating the vaccination registration system without a computer, or computer competency. If this describes someone you know, here is how and when they can call a library and get started:
Residents who are eligible for shots but need extra assistance to navigate the online sign-up process can call any PCL library location (Fox Point, Knight Memorial, Mount Pleasant, Olneyville, Rochambeau, Smith Hill, South Providence, Wanskuck and Washington Park) during scheduled hours; a member of staff will input information into the online system on their behalf and schedule an appointment.
Several Providence Community Library locations have staff who can also assist callers in Spanish. Be advised:
Providence Community Library’s staff can sign up people who are eligible for vaccinations at Providence COVID-19 Vaccine Clinics at the time of calling, subject to appointment availability. The Library cannot assist people who do not meet eligibility requirements, book appointments at other Providence-based clinics, including those at Walgreens or CVS Pharmacy locations, or appointments at facilities in other municipalities.
