Help Getting Your COVID-19 Vaccine

Resources for Scheduling and Getting to Your Appointment

We urge our Tufts Health RITogether members to get a COVID-19 vaccine as soon as they are eligible. There will be no cost to you when you get an FDA-approved vaccine.

Making an appointment may take some time. But there’s help.

Having Trouble?

There are a few ways to make an appointment for a vaccine. You can:

  • Use Rhode Island’s vaccine sign-up website.
  • Visit websites for these local pharmacies that are providing vaccines:
  • Go to Rhode Island’s town directory. Choose the website for the town where you live and then sign up for a vaccine from there. This is a good way to check for appointments close to home. 
  • Call us at 866-738-4116 (TTY: 711). We’re happy to help you!

Help If You Cannot Leave Home

The Rhode Island Department of Health can get you an in-home vaccine if you are unable to leave your home. Please fill out this state survey to ask for a vaccine at home.

Need a Ride?

Rhode Island Medicaid covers rides to medical appointments even if they are not an emergency. This benefit also covers rides to a vaccine appointment.
Call MTM and arrange for your ride. The phone number is 855-330-9131 (TTY: 711). You can call Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Or call us at 866-738-4116 (TTY: 711). We’re happy to help you!


Keep in mind that:

  • Early supplies of the vaccine are limited.
  • States determine when you are eligible to get your vaccine.
  • Experts hope most people will have a chance to get a vaccine over the next few months.
  • You can get the latest information at the state’s COVID-19 information portal.
