(Providence, RI) -- The administration of a third COVID-19 vaccine dose for people who are moderately-to-severely immunocompromised is being approved in Rhode Island. The state says 35-thousand residents fit that category. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration authorized the third doses last week. The shots are immediately available at the vaccination site at Sockanosset Cross Road in Cranston and at Ocean State hospitals, and should also be in retail pharmacies soon.
