The AARP in Rhode Island is asking the state to prioritize residents over the age of 50 to receive COVID-19 vaccinations, giving greater weight to not only those in extended care facilities but also those receiving long-term support in their homes. Additionally, the association is calling for more transparency, urging the state to consistently post information and updates on vaccine administration on a public website.
