🚨SCAM ALERT: COVID-19 VACCINE SCAMS TARGETING SENIORS ACROSS THE COUNTRY🚨
As Warwick residents over the age of 75 continue to wait for the opportunity to get vaccinated against COVID-19, health officials are sending out a warning about scammers taking advantage of this age population.
Scammers are calling people telling them they can speed up the process of getting the vaccine by paying a fee and asking for the person’s social security number. The Health Department would NEVER ask for payment or your social security number for COVID-19 immunization. You also cannot pay to get early access to the vaccine or be put on a waiting list. If you happen to get this phone call, we are urging residents to hang up immediately.
Attention Warwick Residents 75 and Older:
🚨 PLEASE SHARE🚨
WAITING LIST LAUNCHED FOR COVID-19 VACCINE FOR WARWICK RESIDENTS 75 AND OLDER
Warwick residents, who are 75 and older, can now sign up to put their names on a waiting list to get the COVID-19 vaccine when it becomes available to the city later this month. Starting today, those residents can log onto: warwickri.gov/vaccine and fill out a form with basic information.
Once the vaccine is available, residents will receive an email with another link where they can start the registration process to set up an appointment. Following directive from the Department of Health, doses will be distributed from oldest to youngest in this specific age group.
A CODE RED phone call will be going out to residents letting them know about the waiting list. If a resident is not signed up for CODE RED phone calls, they can do so by logging onto the city’s website: warwickri.gov. Under the “online resources” tab, they can click on CODE RED and follow the next steps.
There is no rush to sign up to be on the COVID-19 Vaccine waiting list, as the city is still waiting to receive a set schedule on the next rollout of the vaccine.
If residents, 75 and older, do not have access to a computer to sign up to be on the waiting list, we are urging them to reach out to family members to help them navigate the process.

Wow. We were so honored to be one of our new mayor's first visits after inauguration. What a pleasure to sit with Mayor Frank Picozzi and his staff Elizabeth Tufts and Aaron to have a discussion about the history of the building, the impact of the work WCFA has done over many years and the incredible investments that have been made into that space thanks to grant funding acquired by many volunteer board members over the years. We are extremely grateful for this change and feeling optimistic about the future for WCFA and it's beloved home!

Life update 🚨
After 19 years in the news business and telling people’s stories, I’m stepping away from the camera at ABC 6 News at the end of the month 🎥
It’s been an amazing ride! I’ve met so many great people, some of whom have become lifelong friends. The news business shaped who I am as a person, and I’ll never forget the people I met and the stories I was able to tell over the last two decades in Lincoln, NE, Springfield, MA and here in Rhode Island.
I’m so excited to announce, I’ll be the new Media Coordinator for Frank Picozzi once he’s sworn in as Warwick’s new Mayor in January! I’ll still be telling stories, but in a different way. I’m so blessed for
this amazing opportunity! I know my dad would be proud 💫
