I wanted to give you an update on the current status of our vaccination efforts. Already, we have administered second doses to the first 400 people to be vaccinated in Rhode Island. As of this morning, we have administered 26,163 doses of the vaccine in Rhode Island.
While our Department of Health is working hard to distribute vaccines, we are limited by our supply. Right now, we're receiving 14,000 doses each week – enough for just over 1% of our population. Other states are in the same boat. Still, we’re making good progress. The increase in supply over time as manufacturers ramp up and more vaccines are approved gives us confidence that we’ll be able to put COVID-19 behind us over the next few months. Of course, that will only happen if we continue wearing masks, keeping our distance, and following all the public health guidance.
