What you should know BEFORE and AFTER you get your COVID shot


EDITOR'S COMMENTS: We received our first dose at the mass vaccination site at Sockanossett in Cranston. VERY well organized by the RI National Guard. Efficient, pleasant with very little waiting. Handicapped parking going in was very convenient BUT when you exit, you are on the other side of the building. Had to push Cathy's chair some distance. I will try to find a more convenient exit when we get our second shot on March 31.

I went inside the Westerly CVS on one of the days when they were giving shots. While CVS has modified the store lay-out to accommodate the process, it did not compare well with the National Guard site, largely due to space considerations. I saw a lot of elderly patients sitting and waiting for their shots, something I didn't see in Cranston. But if you figure in the travel time, it may take less time to get your shots at CVS.
