The VA Providence Healthcare System will be providing COVID-19 vaccinations to all Veterans on Monday, March 22, 2021.

The clinic will be located at the old Benny’s at 1400 W. Main Rd. in Middletown RI. The clinic will run from 9 am-2 pm.

“We are using this opportunity to bring more vaccination clinics to our Veterans in the areas that they live,” said Larry Connell, Medical Center Director, VA Providence Healthcare System. “As we have found with other local clinics, bringing vaccine to Veterans makes it easier for them to get the vaccine timely and close to their home.”

Veterans who are not enrolled in the VA Healthcare System will need to bring a copy of their DD214 and a picture ID. Additionally, they will need to fill out a 1010EZ enrollment form. This form can be found at https://www.va.gov/vaforms/medical/pdf/10-10EZ-fillable.pdf. Forms will be available on site for those who cannot bring it with them.

The VA Providence Healthcare System continues to vaccinate Veterans, Monday to Friday from 8 am to 2 pm at the main campus in Providence. Additional vaccination events are being planned, so if you cannot make this clinic there will be others coming soon.
