This has been an exciting week as the first doses of the COVID-19 vaccine were distributed in Rhode Island. We have had a lot of people reach out to us with questions about the vaccine. Today, Dr. Philip Chan and Tricia Washburn of the Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) hosted a Facebook Live to answer questions that Rhode Islanders have sent us about the vaccine. You can watch that video by clicking this link https://fb.watch/2sJXP-7NO3/. Tricia and Dr. Chan covered a wide range of topics, from minor vaccine side effects, to distribution plans and timelines, to some of the transportation and storage challenges they're tackling. I encourage you to take a few minutes to watch the video, and I hope it helps you feel hopeful about all the work that has been done to put COVID-19 in the rear-view mirror. We're all in this together. -Gina Raimondo Governor P.S.: Information is our greatest weapon in the fight against COVID-19.
