We’re in a good, stable place, with hospitalizations and new cases continuing to decline to their lowest levels in months, and our statewide percent positive at just 2%. Now, as we enter Phase 2 and expand to the general population, it’s all about speed and scale. We already have capacity for 1,400 daily vaccinations just at the two State-run sites in Providence and Cranston. Over the coming weeks, we’ll be doubling that capacity to 2,800 daily appointments and adding more sites in the northern and southern regions of our state. And we’ll do it all in partnership with municipalities, with a focus on those hit the hardest.
I'm sure you have a lot of questions. That's why I joined Dr. Nicole Alexander-Scott and Rhode Island National Guard Major General Chris Callahan for a Facebook Live event this afternoon to address some of the most common questions we’ve received about our vaccination campaign. We covered a lot of ground, including how to sign up, when to arrive for your appointment, and more.
