COVID 19 Vaccination Update
As a community health care provider and as part of Rhode Island’s vaccine rollout, Visiting Nurse Home & Hospice expects to participate in immunizing homebound patients in the community. We have yet to confirm if we can offer community clinics for COVID 19 vaccinations.
At this time the state vaccine distribution is planned in PHASES, and specifics have not yet been determined. As soon as we know the details related to vaccine availability, we will share the necessary information with the community.
Please check the VNH&H website at www.visitingnursehh.org or follow our Facebook page HERE for updated vaccine information.
Community Health is a central part of the Visiting Nurse Home & Hospice mission. Our commitment to community health covers wellness programs, community flu clinics, adult blood pressure clinics, support groups (diabetes, and bereavement), health research, community partnerships, and governmental lobbying for home health initiatives.
Flu clinics are complete for the season
