From the Introduction: "The State of Rhode Island is currently planning and preparing for its coming campaign to vaccinate Rhode Islanders against COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019]. To date, this effort has sought to build on previous successful vaccination campaigns and leverage a robust whole-of-government emergency management infrastructure established in response to COVID-19. Through its COVID-19 vaccination campaign, Rhode Island aims to protect human life, safely speed up the reopening of the State's economy, and equitably distribute vaccines through accessible points of dispensing. Ultimately, the State is focused on successfully mitigating the spread of morbidity and mortality by the SARS-CoV-2 [severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2] virus through effective and efficient mass vaccination strategies that equitably ensure universal access to vaccine, while strategically prioritizing distribution, in light of anticipated limited supply of the vaccine, toward the most critical and high-risk populations first."
